What is a business continuity plan and why do businesses need it?

A business continuity plan (BCP) is a document that outlines how a business will continue operating during unplanned disruptions like a cyber-attack, critical system failure and flooding.

BCP plans typically contain a checklist for infrastructure, data backups and backup site locations. They will also contain the steps an organization would take to manage their business processes, assets, human resources and business partners with detailed strategies on how to continue operating during the different types of outages, to meet the pre-defined acceptable RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) parameters.

A good business continuity plan removes the guesswork surrounding the course of action to take during IT disruptions to networks, servers, personal computers and mobile devices for all members of the organization.

The three main aspects to a business continuity plan include:

  1. Identifying threats, risks and priorities.
  2. Planning and catering for continued access to mission critical key applications and processes.
  3. Managing the process of disaster recovery.

Having a business continuity plan enables an organization to achieve improvements in risk management capabilities and minimizes downtime while ensuring compliance to regulatory compliance during a disruption. This business resiliency is important not only for operations, but also for keeping the trust of customers and brand integrity. Simply put, a BCP could be one of the best investments you make to ensure a sustainable business model.
