DEPARTMENT/BUSINESS OVERVIEW

KEY SYSTEMS, SUPPLIERS & INTERNAL DEPENDENCIES

  • Do they have contingency?
  • Our actions should they suffer a prolonged outage

BCP ADMINISTRATION

  • Circulation list
  • Approval and diarised updates

TEST RECORDS AND HISTORY

BCP LIFE CYCLE FUTURE DIARY DATES

BCP CONTROL REVIEW CHECKLIST.

slide10

Has the BCP been fully reviewed annually, with more regular updating of the contacts list?

  • Are the BCP Checklists realistic and have they been tailored for any specific departmental requirements?
  • Have all staff and internal/external key contacts been identified?
  • Is a full staff cascade system in place?
  • Have all staff been issued with a Major Incident Card/Personal Contingency Card (or similar)?
  • Have staff been allocated contingency spaces or will they be contacted at the time of disaster?
  • Have all possible contingency arrangements been explored?
  • Has a ruthless approach been taken to ensure minimum requirements? Are these for critical processing systems only? For key processing areas - have timescales for IT contingency provision been agreed via IT support?
  • Are there any critical 3rd party suppliers? Do they have contingency? Does the BCP cater for the loss of critical 3rd party suppliers?
  • Has the BCP been tested (at least) annually?
  • Are test types relevant to the Department? As a minimum, all departments must undertake a scenario walkthrough exercise.
  • Are issues highlighted in testing resolved or reflected in the plan?
  • Are sufficient copies held at home/offsite?
  • Are there any known major changes expected in the next 12 months which might affect the planned recovery actions?
