Business Continuity

 

In the event of a disaster such as a technological failure, cyber-attack, or pandemic, it’s critical to have a business continuity plan (BCP) that outlines the procedures your company must follow in order to continue operating and recover from the disruption. A business impact analysis (BIA) should also be part of your BCP, which evaluates the effects of a disruption on critical business functions. ACA Aponix provides business continuity planning development and implementation assistance designed to help your company address its operational and other risks in the event of a disruption, as well as meet upcoming regulatory obligations.
