Business Continuity Plan - Varay Managed ItWhy you need business continuity management.

Disasters are closer than you think. Whether the unexpected strikes in the form of a fire, flood, cyber attack, technical fluke, or human failure, you don’t want to be caught off guard. There’s a key difference between the organizations that continue to operate and the ones that shut the doors forever: a business continuity plan. 

What is a business continuity plan (BCP)?

Business continuity plans (BCP) are documented guidelines that a company follows in the event of an unplanned disaster. This function or process assists team members in implementing emergency management to continue business processes.

A business impact analysis (BIA) is essential for creating a business continuity plan template. This ensures that potential threats are planned for. Some items a business continuity plan should include are an alternate facility, access to emergency contact information, access to essential software and hardware

A business impact analysis also provides potential company-wide outcomes. Some of these scenarios are loss of revenue, delayed fulfillment processes, obligatory contract penalties, increased costs and loss of customer advocacy.

Is business continuity the same as disaster recovery (DR)?

The short answer is no. A disaster recovery plan is a process that will help bring back vital software, technology hardware, and essential data. While a BCP focuses on business functionality as a whole, a DR plan is more IT related. 

Having a well thought out disaster recovery plan can be the difference when dealing with cyber threats, internal malicious activity, and defective equipment.
