Business Continuity Planning

Business Continuity Planning (BCP)

This is an interdisciplinary concept used to create and validate a practiced logistical plan for how an organization will recover and restore partially or completely interrupted critical (urgent) function(s) within a predetermined time after a disaster or extended disruption.

The logistical plan is called a Business Continuity Plan.  In plain language, BCP is working out how to stay in business in the event of disaster.

 Incidents include local incidents like building fires, regional incidents like earthquakes, or national incidents like pandemic illnesses. BCP may be a part of an organizational learning effort that helps reduce operational risk associated with lax information management controls. This process may be integrated with improving information security and corporate reputation risk management practices.

Is it relevant to you?

How do you act in case disasters happen. Let's say there is one of the following hitting your business:

  • Disease
  • Earthquake
  • Fire
  • Flood
  • Cyber attack
  • Bribery
  • Hurricane
  • Utility outage
  • Terrorism

Do you have a plan, a backup, a recovery plan in place which is understood by all employees?

Is the organization prepared to function in a disaster where communication is down, people can't be reached or are not anymore available?


Even maybe not required by law for your business it definitely makes sense to establish:

  • A Plan for different scenarios
  • A systematic to keep this plan updated
  • Organizational awareness and preparedness
  • A system which ensures the protection of content

This is essentially done in 2 Steps

  • With a Project that Analyses the situation, Designs Solutions, Designs the Revolving update process and initially implements and tests the plan

  • With an operational execution of the update and awareness program, test drills, as well as the operational securing of business essential content

The depth and content is business and company specific and is to reflect the risk level management is prepared to take.
