The business must go on! This imperative summarizes the importance and need for Business Continuity Planning (BCP). In short, BCP is the process of developing a plan to ensure that an organization can continue its operations and services in the event of a disruption or disaster, such as a natural disaster, a cyber or terrorist attack, power outages, a black swan event, or any other unforeseen disruptive event or emergency. This may include activities, such as identifying potential risks and disruptions; developing strategies and procedures to mitigate these risks and disruptions; as well as testing and reviewing the BCP to ensure its effectiveness.

BCP is important because it helps to ensure that an organization is prepared to handle disruptions and disasters, and can continue to provide essential services and support to its customers, employees, and stakeholders. Additional reasons why BCP is important include (but are not limited to) the following:

Business Continuity Planning is an important aspect of business management, and is essential for organizations that want to be prepared to handle disruptions and disasters—and to maintain their operations with minimal to no downtime and impact on their financials. The importance of BCP has become particularly prevalent in recent times due to the numerous disruptions, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, Supply Chain disruptions, and Russia-Ukraine War.
