Frequently Asked Questions

What processes are part of business continuity planning and business impact analysis?

BIA determines the priority of business functions, defines continuity timing, highlights critical dates, and assigns strategy. In order to complete a BCP, you need to start with a BIA. 

Business continuity planning is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to an organization. The goal of business continuity planning is to enable ongoing operations before, during, and after an incident, which this the framework for establishing organizational resilience and preparedness.  

The three fundamental steps to creating a business continuity program are: 
1. Identify and prioritize business processes to define the plan(s) you need (BIA) 
2. Define your continuity strategy and build a plan (BCP) 
3. Ensure awareness and validate plans with periodic exercises

What is a business continuity plan?

A BCP outlines how a business will function if its operations get interrupted. The goal of a robust Business Continuity Plan is to keep the fundamental processes of a company operational during a disaster and to reduce downtime. A business continuity plan may consider various scenarios, such as natural disasters, wildfires, cyberattacks, workplace violence, or any isolated incident.

What is a Business Impact Analysis (BIA)?

BIA is a process that determines and evaluates the potential effects of an interruption on the critical business functions and defines a recovery strategy. The results of the BIA provide the foundation for effective continuity planning with a focus on business priorities.

Who should be involved in developing a BIA or building a BCP?

Several individuals who represent different essential departments should be involved in the BIA development. Specifically: 

  • Project lead/champion—usually a dedicated business continuity professional or a person who is assigned with building the plan for your organization. 
  • A member of an executive team to get leadership buy-in. 
  • The department heads. 
  • Team members who are assigned with a specific task as part of the BCP.

What businesses require a business continuity plan?

Some organizations, especially those in healthcare, financial, and governmental sectors, are required by law to have a business continuity plan to remain operational and limit losses in the event of a disruption. Among other reasons are: 

  • Compliance with regulatory bodies (OSHA, FINRA, FFIEC, FDIC, HIPAA, etc.) 
  • FFIEC guidance for financial institutions 
  • OSHA requirements for commercial real estate clients (IDPR) 
  • A contractual obligation in the client-vendor relationship 
  • Prior experience of disruption 
  • Protect employees and assets  
  • Prevent revenue loss and damages to brand reputation 

What types of business continuity software or tools should I consider?

There are two major types of BC tools—Project Management tools and Plan Development tools. The former assist in initiating, executing, controlling, and closing the team’s work to complete tasks and comply with rules and regulations. The latter type of BC tools are the most common ones; they help in the development and documentation of recovery plans.
