Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions through all circumstances, and it is a fundamental responsibility of public institutions and private entities responsible to their stakeholders. Continuity planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”
The COOP presentation will:
1. Provide an understanding of Continuity Planning and Risk Management,
2. Explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability,
3. Emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations that enable organizations to continue their essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies.
In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:
Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism.
Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations.
Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.

Business Continuity has moved well beyond basic recovery of technology and facilities and is now focused on protection of reputation and business value whenever an organization is threatened by unexpected events.Read more >

For many ordinary people ‘supply chains’ are a means to an end, they represent a mechanism through which goods and services are delivered on a daily basis, all around the world. Today’s supply chains are multi-level complex operations that not only rely on the flow of produce and goods, but also rely heavily on people, integrated information systems, infrastructure, transport and distribution networks - an interruption to any of these could result in the dis-continuity of the business.Read more >
