Document Overview

The Business Continuity Plan is designed to ensure the continuous operations of a company during and after a significant business disruption (SBD).

What does a Business Continuity Plan cover?

  • Definition of Significant Business Disruptions;
  • Responsible persons;
  • Business impact analysis;
  • Recovery strategies;
  • Incident response;
  • Business continuity procedures;
  • Communication plan;
  • Training and awareness;
  • Backup and recovery;
  • Supply chain and third-party management; and
  • Legal and regulatory compliance.

Note: many of the sections in this BCP have been kept as high-level concepts, as it is up to small business to determine which procedures they will actually implement in case of an SBD. We recommend speaking to a specialist in the field, such as an emergency management consultant.

Should my business have a Business Continuity Plan?

SMEs should have a BCP to identify potential threats and plan for their mitigation, ensuring the company and its stakeholders are well-prepared for any emergency. This plan allows the company to respond efficiently to disruptions and minimize their impact on day-to-day operations.
