How to create an effective business continuity plan?

An effective business continuity plan not only ensures that an organisation is going to have an internationally recognized availability, but it is also going to be the go-to source when it comes to an event of crisis.  

An effective business continuity plan not only ensures that an organisation is going to have an internationally recognized availability, but it is also going to be the go-to source when it comes to an event of crisis.  

Setting up a strategy:  

Organisations must identify and use strategies to keep the day-to-day business operations in fully working condition.  

Organizational structure:  

The structure of the organisation must be set up minding the skills, responsibilities, and communication of its employees 

Software risk mitigation:  

It is crucial to take a closer look at the software because all businesses depend on it to run daily operations. 

Technology infrastructure and processes:  

Critical business processes necessary to run the business, including the IT processes and the technology infrastructure such as the systems and networks used, must be brought up to international standard to ensure operations going smoothly.   

Physical infrastructure:  

A disaster recovery plan and identification of business availability needs in times of crisis must be considered.   

It is important to identify the main risks, threats and vulnerabilities first by cross referencing them with ISO 22301. This analysis is going to shed light to planning an aggregated business continuity plan and is going to enable the organisation to make necessary changes by taking administrative actions until the requirements of the standard is reached.
