Business Continuity Planning Process Diagram - Text VersionWhen business is disrupted, it can cost money.
HSMC Orizon Technology can assist you to assess your risks and work with you to customize a business continuity plan that is tailored to your situation, the company’s existing technology and business processes, and your environment.  We will help you prepare to get your business up and running quickly in the event of a disaster. In the event of an intentional or accidental introduction of a foreign animal disease, stop movement orders will be implemented through the state veterinarian incident command under the authority of the secretary of agriculture until an investigation can be carried out and all infected, at-risk and suspect premises identified.4 During this time, livestock operations will need to continue to receive items necessary to feed, water and ensure the health of their animals. Resumption of normal business operations will require a systematic demonstration of freedom from disease.4-6 Those entities enrolled in sector-specific business continuity plans and biosecurity programs will have the mechanisms they need to demonstrate they are free of disease and to more quickly resume their business operations.
IIAD’s Engage to Excel (E2E) project will focus on supporting the national-level priority of business continuity planning for the agricultural sector. Therefore, recovery strategies for information technology should be developed so technology can be restored in time to meet the needs of the business. Through partnerships with the National Pork Board, producers, and the Center for Food Security and Public Health, IIAD tools developed to support the information sharing that is required for implementation of the Secure Pork Supply Plan will be critical to maintaining continuity of business during an animal disease outbreak.
The worksheet should be completed by business function and process managers with sufficient knowledge of the business. IIAD has also developed tools supporting data collection for the Secure Egg Supply Plan in Iowa, capturing 99 percent of egg premises data in the state, and a survey tool to collect business operations information for the Secure Milk Supply Plan in six New England states. Once all worksheets are completed, the worksheets can be tabulated to summarize:the operational and financial impacts resulting from the loss of individual business functions and processthe point in time when loss of a function or process would result in the identified business impactsThose functions or processes with the highest potential operational and financial impacts become priorities for restoration.


Objectively, business continuity is about returning to normal business processes and activities as quickly as possible, with the understanding that this may require several steps. Figure 1 depicts the evolving nature of business continuity as the emergency management process unfolds. The schematic in Figure 2 shows the transition from detection of disease through the establishment of quarantine zones and movement controls to the implementation of managed movement through continuity of business plans. The Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheet should be completed by business function and process managers. Central to this figure is the role that business continuity plans will play in the “start-up” and permitting of movement from well-characterized premises and within zones. IIAD–developed tools supporting business continuity, and industry confidence in the ability of IIAD researchers to securely link to sensitive information, will facilitate smooth implementation of the Secure Food Supply Plans by supplying decision makers with the data needed to implement management movement.
Completed worksheets are used to determine the resource requirements for recovery strategies.Following an incident that disrupts business operations, resources will be needed to carry out recovery strategies and to restore normal business operations. The shared situational awareness enabled by IIAD tools is critical to the effectiveness of business continuity planning and operations. Meetings with individual managers should be held to clarify information and obtain missing information.After all worksheets have been completed and validated, the priorities for restoration of business processes should be identified.
This information will be used to develop recovery strategies.Recovery StrategiesIf a facility is damaged, production machinery breaks down, a supplier fails to deliver or information technology is disrupted, business is impacted and the financial losses can begin to grow. Recovery strategies are alternate means to restore business operations to a minimum acceptable level following a business disruption and are prioritized by the recovery time objectives (RTO) developed during the business impact analysis.Recovery strategies require resources including people, facilities, equipment, materials and information technology.
It can readily be utilized as a “pooled sample” and is already being collected throughout many swine operations for endemic disease surveillance.


Staff with in-depth knowledge of business functions and processes are in the best position to determine what will work.
Operations may be relocated to an alternate site - assuming both are not impacted by the same incident. Equipping converted space with furnishings, equipment, power, connectivity and other resources would be required to meet the needs of workers.Partnership or reciprocal agreements can be arranged with other businesses or organizations that can support each other in the event of a disaster. Assuming space is available, issues such as the capacity and connectivity of telecommunications and information technology, protection of privacy and intellectual property, the impacts to each other’s operation and allocating expenses must be addressed.
Periodic review of the agreement is needed to determine if there is a change in the ability of each party to support the other.There are many vendors that support business continuity and information technology recovery strategies.
External suppliers can provide a full business environment including office space and live data centers ready to be occupied. The availability and cost of these options can be affected when a regional disaster results in competition for these resources.There are multiple strategies for recovery of manufacturing operations.
