Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is a Necessity

Business continuity and contingency planning are vital activities for every company regardless of size. Every day, businesses are confronted with disasters of varying degrees and impacts. Those that have adequately developed, maintained and exercised their contingency plans will thrive. Yet many organizations continue to take the uninhibited operations of their companies for granted.

The creation of a business continuity and contingency plan is a complex mufti-part series of steps. Prior to the creation of the plan itself, it is essential to consider the potential impacts of disaster and to understand the underlying risks. The plan itself must be established, maintained and tested to ensure that it remains appropriate to the needs of the organization.

With the efficiencies and advantages that accrue out of a state of the art information infrastructure come risks, threats and vulnerabilities to disasters of various kinds, which the organization must contend with to maintain its leadership position.

Assuming everything will always be “normal” and working, that the power will always be available, the telephone system will not fail and there will be no fire or earthquake can be devastating. However, if a business is to survive, organizational "strategic" and "tactical" battle planning is essential.
