Business Continuity Planning:
Any event that could negatively impact operations, such as supply chain interruption, loss of or damage to critical infrastructure (major machinery or computing /network resource) must be included in a business continuity plan. As such, Business Continuity Planning is a subset of risk management.
A Business Continuity Plan outlines a range of disaster scenarios and the steps the business or organization will take in any particular scenario to return to regular trade and service. BCPs must be prepared ahead of time and can also include precautions to be put in place. Usually created with the input of key staff as well as stakeholders, a BCP is a set of contingencies to minimize potential harm to businesses during adverse scenarios.
Business continuity planning (or business continuity and resiliency planning) is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to a company.
An organization's resistance to failure is, "the ability ... to withstand changes in its environment and still function". Often called resilience, it is a capability that enables organizations to either endure environmental changes without having to permanently adapt, or to adapt a new way of working that better suits the new environmental conditions.
3Si Risk Strategies has provided this type of service to a broad range of clients with the primary focus being to enable critical services and products to be continually delivered to and from our clients and their valuable customers. Instead of focusing on resuming business after critical operations have ceased or, recovering after a disaster, a business continuity plan endeavors to ensure that critical operations continue to be available throughout a crisis without any significant disruption to critical business unit functions.
