The purpose of the Take 5 business continuity discussion topics is to engage employees and colleagues on your company's plan(s) to respond to potentially critical situations.  Take 5 minutes, once a month, to present the situation and gather the responses. These quick discussions can happen during a morning meeting, at the water cooler, during weekly correspondence via e-mail, or virtually anywhere.  Engage your employees on your organization's business continuity planning efforts and how they would respond to an emergency situation.

Make sure to check back each month as we will be releasing a new situation to discuss, or become a Partner of Safeguard Iowa and receive our Collaborative Corner.  Each month, the Take 5 discussion topic will be released within the newsletter.

June 2016 - Scenario 6


It’s the beginning of your workday and you are reviewing unread e-mails within your inbox from the previous day/night. You see an e-mail with a subject “Your Retirement May be Affected – Act Today!” Additionally, an attachment is included titled “Action Steps to Safeguard Your Retirement”.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How would you react?
  2. Not recognizing the sender, would you contact someone prior to opening to validate the authenticity?
  3. Would you open the attachment?
  4. Does your company have a cybersecurity policy? If so, have you been trained and know what suspicious electronic activity to look for?
