Preparing a Business Continuity Plan from scratch can be a daunting task. To some people it is a bit like being asked to write a novel without a structure, character profiles or plot.
It shouldn't be that difficult. After all, you already have a structure in your organisation, you know the characters and your plot is to recover and continue the business should you be unfortunate enough to suffer a disaster.
Some people find Word templates helpful, and if you are one of those you will find templates in the Knowledge Store section of our website. Others prefer to use software to help organise this task.
Aviva is proud to recommend ROBUST, a FREE Business Continuity software package that has been developed through RISC Authority with contributions from Aviva.
ROBUST step by step guide will help you understand your organisation from a Business Continuity perspective. ROBUST generates bespoke forms and questionnaires which you can use to collect information and ROBUST then uses this information to create your Business Continuity Plan.
A particular strength of ROBUST is the Incident Management Plan generated within the Business Continuity Plan which will enable you to tailor your response to disasters. It also provides a wealth of information and support through what can be a very testing time.
Simply click here to go to the ROBUST website. You will need to register first to download the software. Don't worry, this is simply to ensure you are notified of any software changes or updates. In addition you will also gain access to a suite of useful documents and guides.
It is natural that, in the course of your Business Continuity Planning, you will come across some areas of risk in your business that you will want to address. Remember you can return to this site and use the Knowledge Store to explore best practice in risk management. Or just call our Risk Helpline to find out more about our tailored Business Continuity Planning services.
