Writing and Implementing BCP Plan - Approach based on ISO 22301

Background on BCM and ISO 22301
Is Your Organization's Business Continuity Plan Effective?
All companies are exposed to various types of natural and manmade disasters which can disrupt the business. These are typically difficult to predict and of high severity. Managing Business Continuity & Recovery is an essential part of running any modern organization that takes its business and its clients seriously. With so many potential business disasters looming that can befall an organization at any time, it seems unwise not to take actions to prepare for and try to prevent the devastating impact of such catastrophes. Therefore Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) has become an important component of a company’s risk management.


The Challenge
The challenge for companies is to evaluate how all material risks including resiliency risks are being managed as it strives towards achieving the organisation’s objectives and delivering value. Companies need to implement workable BCMS solutions designs to meet their resiliency requirement and not just regulators or customers.

Business Continuity Plan is a critical part of the BCMS process for identifying & documenting BC solutions and no company can afford outdated, incomplete or untested plans. Writing good BCP plans is time consuming and vital in the BCMS process. A good business continuity plan provides a roadmap for continuing operations under adverse conditions.
