  1. Business Continuity The Basics Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Team

  2. Where Business Continuity Fits Emergency Planning is undertaken by local and central government alongside the emergency services to ensure the local community are assisted and supported during an emergency. Disaster Recovery ensures you have back up plans for your organisation’s computer and telephony systems. Business Continuity ensures you have plans for your organisation that ensure you can continue to offer a level of service to your customers during an emergency and return to full service as quickly as possible.

  3. The Business Continuity Lifecycle • Understand your organisation. • Write your plan. • Share your plan. • Test your plan. • Maintain your plan. Source: The BCI Good Practice Guidelines

  9. Next Steps To consider for your plan: • Format – small is good, use K.I.S.S approach. • Roles – if you have to respond who does what? • Invocation – who makes the decision? • Distribution – who has copies and where are they kept? • Testing – how do you make sure things work? • Maintenance – who is responsible for upkeep of the plan?
