Business Continuity Services supports preparation activities of faculty and staff members to sustain the University’s mission-critical functions when disruptive events affect the campus. This could be an emergency on campus including a fire, a plane crash or a natural disaster.
Three steps for business continuity planning include determining your critical business functions, their priorities and their representatives. Next, you must develop a plan. Lastly, take action. This includes communicating, testing and updating the plans.
The illustration below shows how Emergency Response, Crisis Management and Business Continuity are all separate but come together to play important roles during an emergency.
