your Business Continuity position
Business continuity assessment is critical for your business, because the best time to deal with a disaster is before it happens. This has been a very hard lesson for many businesses globally in 2020 because of the CODIV-19 pandemic that has brought economies to an abrupt halt. Business continuity provides a planned response and puts in place measures to reduce interruption and minimise losses. If you don't have a business continuity plan a short assessment will help to outline issues you need to consider to enable you to prepare for an emergency that may disrupt your business.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY
DAVIDZO SHAMHU, CEO

Any time a natural disaster or an epidemic or a major unseen event occurs, it increases business leaders' awareness and internal pressure to create a disaster recovery plan or a business continuity plan. Traditional disaster recovery plan templates result in a lengthy, heavy, dense plan that might satisfy auditors but will not be effective in a crisis. Organisations are left vulnerable to more common incidents because of the myth that a disaster recovery plan is only for major disasters. Equally so Business Continuity Planning requires input from multiple departments with different and sometimes conflicting objectives. In most businesses, there are typically few, if any, dedicated resources for Business Continuity Planning, so it can't be a full-time, resource-intensive project. The traditional approach to Business Continuity Plan is a massive project that most organizations can’t execute without hiring a consultant.
That is where Nhaka steps in.
