Business Continuity Planning
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is the development of a strategy that recognises the threats and risks facing a company to ensure that personnel and assets are protected and able to function in the event of a disaster.
Business continuity is an essential part of any organisation’s response planning. The Plan sets out how the business will operate following an incident and outlines how it expects to return to ‘business as usual’ in the fastest possible time.
A BCP can apply to a multitude of situations including: terrorist incidents, cyber attacks, hardware and software failure or natural disasters such as: fires, floods, earthquakes etc.
