A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a set of procedures and processes of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to a business. The goal is to enable ongoing operations before and during the execution of disaster recovery. A Disaster Recovery Plan is a component of a BCP and is focused on restoring vital support systems.
Most disasters don't give advance notice on when they are going to happen, even if there is some warning, events unfold rapidly and can change quickly.
During these events is when a Business Continuity Plan comes into play. An up-to-date, tested plan gives your business the best chance of surviving a disaster. By not having a BCP you are putting considerable risk on your business to not only recover slowly, but perhaps not at all.
Provide training on how to create the Business Continuity Plan and brief to Senior Management Team.
