This Excel document provides a set of templates to capture data and analysis when conducting a Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) project for any size organization. These templates were originally developed for a large, international enterprise with locations in multiple geographies.

This workbook contains 5 sections:

Business Impact Ratings - This sheet captures every critical business process (CBP), as identified by their respective owners, within the organization. For each CBP, important information is captured: e.g. impact analysis, tier rating, dependencies, and critical times.

Current State Inventory - This sheet provides a high-level snapshot of the organization's readiness to respond to a crisis or emergency. Information to be inventoried includes alternate work sites, laptops, remote access connections, Blackberries, DR plans, BCPs, and phone trees.

Inventory and Assessment - This template captures important emergency contact and facility information for all domestic and international sites within the organization.

Findings Report - This spreadsheet outlines all findings and issues within the organization, as identified through the BCP evaluation process. Each such finding is associated with a risk type; analyzed for possible remediation; associated with department(s); associated with critical business processes (as identified in Business Impact Ratings); and rated on several measures of risk, urgency, and cost to remediate.

Risk Category Definitions - Each BCP finding is categorized within a defined set of 16 risk types to facilitate the analysis of similar findings and risks. These risk category definitions are captured in this spreadsheet.
