Your systems are up and running. You have no issues. It’s business as usual and all is as it should be. Then, suddenly, it’s not. A flood, an earthquake, a tornado or a fire threatens your organization’s ability to continue operating. Systems are offline, critical business processes have stalled. What damage has been inflicted? How long until you can recover? What do you do in the meantime? These are questions that no organization can properly answer without proper planning and testing.
The implications of an unplanned and unprepared-for event can be devastating to a company, as well as to the patients it serves. The only way to mitigate such risks is through comprehensive planning and testing. Sean Bernard, lead business consultant in Perficient's life sciences practice, discussed why business continuity and disaster planning are so critical to life sciences companies, and shares best practices for preparing your company for the unforeseen.
