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.

December 2016 - Scenario 12


Overall, risk management is the employee’s responsibility. The impacts of outside threats, vulnerabilities and consequences have the ability to greatly impact business on a small to large scale. As you look at your work area, think of the following questions.

Discussion Questions:

  1. What items are critical for you to complete your daily activities (electricity, water, IT, etc)
  2. Do you have protections in place to protect against intentional and accidental damage to those areas?
  3. How quickly can each of these areas be restored to normal function following a disruption?
  4. How would you work with managers and business owners to improve safety and security in the workplace?
