A business continuity plan describes the approach to recover essential business operations following a disaster or major incident at Company.
The definition of a disaster is:
Any sudden, unplanned event that seriously threatens the business viability or reputation of CompanyThe primary intention of a Business Continuity Plan is to deal with major operating disruptions, affecting the impacted site, which would seriously impact the companies ability to conduct normal business operations for a significant period of time. These operating disruptions include, but are not limited to:
- Major fire;
- Building structure failure; and
- Other unforeseen catastrophic events
The intended use of a business continuity plan is as an action plan to facilitate the recovery of the affected business functions in the event of a disaster or major incident.
The Business Continuity Plans we develop are normally comprised of three sections:
Section 1 contains information about the plan, its scope and objectives and the underlying recovery strategies.
Section 2 contains recovery plans for each team involved in the recovery process, including contact information, recovery location, infrastructure requirements and detailed task lists.
Section 3 contain supplementary documentation (e.g. checklists, forms, contact lists, etc) to be used in conjunction with the instructions in Section 2.
