Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP)

BCP and DRP

It is generally recognised that Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) are vital activities. The creation of (and maintenance of) a sound business continuity and disaster recovery plan, is a complex undertaking, involving a series of professional mapping

Historical Data about potential impact, is essential in order to consider the potential scale of disaster and understand the underlying risks

These are the fundamentals upon which a sound BCP or DCP is based. Following these activities the plan itself is planned with "military precision". Regular reviews (three monthly) must be maintained, tested and audited to ensure that the supported infrastructure and services remains appropriate to the needs of the organisation

Business Impact and Risk Analysis (BI & RA)

In a prudent business continuity process it is right to consider the potential impacts business interfaces, type of disaster or event. This is critical when planning for a disaster and their likely impacts on business/organization

Having determined the impacts, it is now equally important to consider the risk magnitude which could result in these impacts. As it will determine which scenarios are most likely to occur and which should attract most attention during the planning process

BIA and RA are disciplines in their own right and a tactical method has emerged to simplify these tasks. In the Military we use COBRA methodology and thesame tools are now use across other industry
