  • Review the supplier's own business continuity capabilities.
  • Ask the supplier how they would help you recover following a disaster.
  • Review the supplier's service level agreements and acceptable downtime.

Suppliers could include raw materials shipments, utility services, logistics services, or IT service providers.
