Template 1 - Business Impact Analysis

A BIA helps to explain how the business could be affected by a major incident and provides the basis for Business Continuity Planning (BCP) by identifying recovery times for key activities. It should be reviewed at least quarterly or following any major change.

Contents include sections and templated tables for:

  • What we can tolerate
  • What our customers expect
  • Recovering our critical products and services
  • Recovering our critical activities
  • Recovering our critical sustems
  • Recovering our critical plant equipment and resources
  • Restoring our critical supplies
  • Dependencies

Template 2 - Business Continuity Plan

The BCP is designed to enable responsible managers to concentrate on their own area of business restoration whilst leaving issues such as recovery of data and voice links, staff welfare, staff relocation and media communication to specialists in those areas.

Contents include sections and templated tables for:

  • Emergency response
  • Crisis management
  • Business recovery
  • Product recovery
  • Operational recovery
  • Systems recovery
  • Resources, plant and equipment recovery
  • Supplier and stock recovery
  • Key contacts

Not got the time or energy for templates? No Problem

Organisations are complex beasts, especially where there are many customers, products, processes, resources and suppliers to consider.  

So bear in mind a template is just that, an empty vessel for you to populate with no responsive guidance.  Getting all the right material in there is entirely down to you.

Business continuity software automates, helps you manage the complexity and is pre-populated with best-practice material.  It makes planning much easier.
