Being in business means taking risk
For many reasons, your organisation needs a Business Continuity Plan and proper Risk Management framework/practices, for example for regulatory requirements (e.g. direct/indirect APRA, Government, Bank Negara compliance), to meet customer expectations, for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to meet industry standards (e.g. ISO) and/or to achieve a better/cheaper insurance arrangement.
