Business Continuity Planning
Business interruption is a serious and expensive issue. Most financial services organizations have comprehensive plans to deal with interruptions and assess their impact on corporate real estate and business systems.
As these companies look to maintain security of service and mitigate risk, many are discovering how GIS-based business continuity planning (BCP) enables them to move beyond static paper plans.
GIS integrates many seemingly unconnected data sources and provides an intuitive visual snapshot of the company’s assets. GIS allows BCP managers to understand where assets, facilities, and employees are located and analyze the risks and threats they face.
BCP often includes scenarios and protocols that use what-if models to develop more comprehensive plans. A GIS-based dashboard-type application can be used in an emergency operations center to support notification and information-sharing capabilities and to reestablish critical business functions and ensure services are maintained.
