Turning Potential Disasters into an Annoyance®
What Should I Include?
The focus of a Business Continuity Plan is making sure that your Mission Essential Functions (MEF) - those tasks that you perform that support your core business - have the resources required to resume operations as quickly and efficiently as possible. The MEF are identified during your Operational Analysis (Business Impact Analysis - BIA). Typically resources fall into one of the following categories:
- Computer Applications: Server, Web-based, local PC programs you use. E-mail is a typical example.
- Electronic Data Files: Spreadsheets, MS Word / PDF documents, Transaction Log files. These can be stored on a server or on your local hard drive
- Hard Copy Documents: Contracts, Log Books, Financial Statements, Blueprints or Mechanical Drawings
- Office Equipment: PCs, Photocopiers, Shredders, Safes, Specialized / Desktop Printers, Telephones
- Tools of the Trade: Fingerprint Machines, Digital Cameras, Testing Equipment, Safes, Refrigerators
- Manufacturing Equipment: Industry Specific, Customized Tools of the Trade
- Employee / Vendor / Stakeholder Contact Information: Be sure to include off-hour phone and personal e-mail
- Alternate Facility Requirements: Of the above, what is required within 24 hours, 1 week, 1 month
Depending upon your particular business, other items may be necessary, but these are the basics.
