The Economics of Business Continuity

When we talk about the economics of business continuity, we don’t just mean the cost of developing your program. Ultimately there is a number of costs associated with implementing your contingency programs. However, when discussing the economics of business continuity we must include additional financial calculations in order to be accurate. These costs include:

  • Cost of downtime
  • The utility of your program (protecting against revenue loss)
  • ROI (yes it is calculable)
  • Cost benefits of implementing mitigations
  • And more…

All of these cost considerations and more make up the true economics of your business continuity program. To learn about how your contingency programs can benefit from knowing these calculations download our whitepapers today.
