Business continuity planning (BCP) involves written, detailed plans to help a business recover from interruptions to its activities and processes after a major failure or disaster.
- Identifying all potential dangers that could impact business operations
- Analyzing the financial and human impact of disruptions on business operations
- Designing and implementing processes and systems to minimize disruption, including any federal, state, and local emergency resources, procedures, and personnel that may be available
- Establishing employee awareness training and scheduled practice drills
Identifying the business, social, and political events that would trigger an update to the plan BCP is an umbrella concept, and is a company-wide activity that impacts all aspects of the business and its use of information assets. Furthermore, it is focused on processes and activities necessary for the company’s continuance (e.g., the ability to process orders). Finally, it is concerned with the long-term survival of the company.
