Arcadia Business Continuity Planning (BCP)

by | Apr 11, 2020

Business continuity planning (or business continuity and resiliency planning) is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to a company In addition to prevention, the goal is to enable ongoing operations before and during execution of disaster recovery.

An organization’s resistance to failure is “the ability … to withstand changes in its environment and still function”. Often called resilience, it is a capability that enables organizations to either endure environmental changes without having to permanently adapt, or the organization is forced to adapt a new way of working that better suits the new environmental conditions.


The analysis phase consists of

  • impact analysis
  • threat analysis and
  • impact scenarios.

Business impact analysis (BIA)

A Business impact analysis (BIA) differentiates critical (urgent) and non-critical (non-urgent) organization functions/activities. A function may be considered critical if dictated by law.

Each function/activity typically relies on a combination of constituent components in order to operate:

Human resources (full-time staff, part-time staff, or contractors)
IT systems
Physical assets (mobile phones, laptops/workstations etc.)
Documents (electronic or physical)
For each function, two values are assigned:

Recovery Point Objective (RPO) – the acceptable latency of data that will not be recovered. For example, is it acceptable for the company to lose 2 days of data?[22] The recovery point objective must ensure that the maximum tolerable data loss for each activity is not exceeded.
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) – the acceptable amount of time to restore the function
