Hurricanes, fires, floods, bombs, pandemics, large scale electrical failures, sabotage, and many other natural and man-made disasters can cause billions in damages, fatalities, and even business failures.
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is the creation and validation of a practiced logistical plan for how an organization will recover and restore partially or completely interrupted critical (urgent) functions 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. 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.
Emergencies take their toll on business … in lives and dollars. A Business Continuity Plan can save your bottom-line.
