What is a Business Continuity Plan?
A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a means of preparing your organization for the unexpected and ensuring your business survives in the event of a serious loss or incident. Along with crisis management and disaster recovery, a BCP forms part of an organization’s overall risk management strategy.
How will your organization react if your premises are temporarily or even permanently lost due to a fire or flood? What if someone is seriously injured on your premises? Where will you set up operations in the event of a fire ? How will you inform your clientele? Will you be able to access important documents and records? How will you communicate with employees? A Business Continuity Plan can address these and many other questions.
