Generate plans to deal with a major event

While developing plans to deal with a major event people and businesses are confronted by two different terms – Business Continuity Plan and Disaster Recovery Plan. iPA is here to help you generate plans that are best suited to your business.


Why Plan?

The more common reasons concern the protection of:

  • Company assets including data and information
  • Company revenue
  • Company market share
  • Stakeholder interests
  • Statutory and regulatory changes
  • Legal obligations to take precautionary measures
  • Auditors and Insurance Company document requirements

Business Continuity Plan (BCP)

  •  Ensures that essential business functions continue to operate during and after a disaster.
  • Seek to protect their mission critical services.
  • Re-establish services to a fully functional level as quickly as possible after a disaster.
  • Cover most or all of an organisation’s critical business processes and operations.


Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)

  • Technical plans developed specifically to allow them to recover a particular business application.
  • The most well known example is IT DRP.
  • The typical test for a DR Plan for IT would be; “if we lost our IT services how would recover them?”

Advantages of BCP & DR Planning

  • A recovery will be quicker and more efficiently carried out.
  • An increased likelihood of business survival.
  • An increased likelihood of meeting statutory and legal requirement.
  • A possible reduction in insurance premiums.
  • An organisation may experience an improved credit rating.
  • May assist in securing business contracts with key customers.
