This BCP template is an optional guide to SME to assist them in fulfilling their need to create and maintain business continuity plans (BCPs) and emergency contact person lists. You are free to edit the Business Continuity Plan Template as you see fit.
When your business is disrupted, it can cost a lot of money. Lost revenues plus extra expenses mean reduced profits! Your insurance maybe does not cover all the costs and cannot replace customers that defect to the competition. A business continuity plan to continue business is essential. Development of a business continuity plan includes four steps:
- Conduct a business impact analysis to identify time-sensitive or critical business functions and processes and the resources that support them.
- Identify, document, and implement to recover critical business functions and processes.
- Organize a business continuity team and compile a business continuity plan to manage a business disruption.
- Conduct training for the business continuity team and testing and exercises to evaluate recovery strategies and the plan.
