This Precedent will help you to conduct an annual review of your business continuity arrangements.
This is a Precedent cascade or communication system that you can use as part of your business continuity plan (BCP) procedures. You should ensure all staff are covered.
This Precedent business continuity plan (BCP) key contacts list is a schedule for recording the names and contact details of all personnel and other contacts and suppliers who play a key role in delivering and maintaining the organisation’s BCP and recovery process.
This Precedent Business continuity plan (BCP) priority list of functions and detailed risk assessment can help you give further detailed consideration to the actions that will be taken in the event that a specific risk materialises. It also encourages you to review the key elements of the business that are needed to continue trading while considering the impact to those functions that a business interruption might have. This Precedent is produced in partnership with DG Legal.
This Precedent risk assessment provides examples of the sorts of matters you should consider and apply to your own business in conducting your business continuity plan risk assessment. This table is illustrative of common business continuity risks faced by organisations. The specific risks to individual organisations may vary.
