Business Continuity

Business Continuity Planning is key to being a resilient organization. Resilience is the ability of an organization to anticipate, prepare for, respond to and adapt to both incremental changes and sudden disruptions from an external perspective.

We must take the time to have thought-provoking discussions to help determine and prioritize your department/colleges’ ongoing needs for success. We provide guidance and the foundation for business continuity planning for the university through training, planning, reviewing, testing and assessment, along with tabletop and full-scale exercises. We can help you identify what the mission-critical and essential functions are; determine your succession line and identify the technology needs for your team.

Business Continuity is not just a buzzword. It is imperative that each unit understands their needs and how to plan for a successful future following an interruption in services, personnel, technology or facilities. 

Resiliency is key to the success of the university, to meet the mission of the departments, colleges and university, as a whole. 

At OUHSC, we will utilize our Continuity of Operations Plan template and quick guide, located below. 

For more information, to create/update your plan, or to schedule a review or exercise, contact:  EJ Miller, (405) 271-3287 x2, or by email at
