Organizational Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is one of the most critical components of any recovery strategy. Unfortunately, not every organization develops an effective BCP, which increases their risks and reduces operational readiness.
A Business Continuity Plan is important and will ensure that your organization minimizes losses and reduces service delivery downtime. A completed BCP could mean the difference between whether your business fully recovers, or is one of many that simply cannot recover in time before incurring great losses.
The typical development of BCP entails the following activities:
- Execution of Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and Risk Assessment, which will determine impacts on functions, services and processes which are critical to your organization.
- Mapping out functions and processes minimum service levels and their dependency on resource requirements (e.g. people, facilities, technology, IT applications and essential records).
- Critical functions and services regulatory and compliance requirements.
- Development of Business Continuity Recovery Strategy which will ensure that your organization will meet it's business resiliency requirements (e.g. remote work strategy, pandemic planning - social distancing, etc.)
Once developed, a BCP must be continuously assessed, maintained and tested. This continuous process will ensure that the BCP stays relevant and your staff knows how to react during business disrupting situations.
Our advisors can help your organization in developing and maintaining a comprehensive and effective BCP using a simplified and optimal approach.
