These days, I am preparing for CISSP. Let’s discuss the BCP in this post.
BCP means business continuity planning. It involves accessing the risks to organizational processes and creating policies, plans, and procedures to minimize the impact those risks might have on the organization if they were to occur. The BCP is typically strategically focused at a high level and center themselves on business processes and operations, while DRP(Disaster Recovery Planning) tends to be more tactical in nature and describes technical activities such ad recovery sites, backups, and fault tolerance.
The BCP process has for main steps:
The identification process is critical. It provides the groundwork necessary to help identify potential members of the BCP team. What’s more, it provides the foundation for the remainder fo the BCP process.
Business impact assessment(BIA) BIA identifies the resources that are critical to an organization’s ongoing viability and the threats posed to those resources. The results of the BIA provide you with quantitative measures that can help you prioritize the commitment of business continuity resources.
