This is a new forum: Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is “planning which identifies the organization's exposure to internal and external threats and synthesizes hard and soft assets to provide effective prevention and recovery for the organization, whilst maintaining competitive advantage and value system integrity”

There is one resource that I've found to be the most helpful related to business continuity, the Business Continuity Institute's Good Practice Guidlines:

Long time no see, quality related folks.

I'm sure this was covered in another thread but the related British Standard changed to an ISO standard a year or so back (BS 25999 to ISO 22301).

The general function and the standard requirements are sort of two different things but it can't hurt to reference what a complete documented management system covers, since the functional aspects are a big part of it. For example, there is a good reason for separating an initial background review into different stages of Business Impact Assessment and then Risk Assessment.

Unless my memory fails me I read an Australian standard that did it in the other order some time ago, RA first then BIA, but now that an ISO version is set everyone might as well agree on that other order.

As in the case of everything in the world of process and standards the general content on the internet would be of limited usefulness since specific application in any company depends on informed interpretation and application, but then that goes without saying.

BCP "template" examples you find online are generally pretty bad (short on content, or even just short on words) but if you run across actual examples people put out there for different reasons (eg. a university's disaster-specific planning) some of that might be helpful as input. Of course they couldn't help identify your own critical business processes, and specific disruption threats, and risk mitigation measures (contingency plans), which is really the main point more than what to do in an earthquake, even if that is quite relevant in some places.

This forum was added "By Request". If you have anything to add, please do.

What is the current status of a Business Continuity & Resiliency Planning (BCRP) for your company?

In my opinion, having a formal BCP is smart, and in some cases critical, but very few companies will do it unless forced to by their customers and/or regulatory agencies.

Let's face it, very few people have done any significant amount of personal emergency planning -- they think it will never be needed by them, only others. Normalcy bias I think is the term. They go into winter with no backup heat. They never check their spare tire. They let their insulin supply get down to a day before getting more. Etc etc.

Even our various levels of government are in many instances unprepared for maintaining critical services in the event of certain emergencies.

I hope this part of the forum takes off -- it would be a good sign -- but I doubt it will.

This question came up during the certification audit to ISO9001:2015. We breeze through this topic by showing our BCP bringing in some of the threats we defined in the SWOT analysis of the Context of the Organization. I would like to share a document but all I did was adapted and modified a document from ELSMAR COVE (before it went down). Thank you ELSMAR COVE.
