The main of BCP is to continue our business activities
without any fail even a major disaster happens, in order to achieve all this
organization need a planning which is known as Business Continuity Planning.
The core steps in this BCP are as follows

1.     Contingency
Planning Policy

2.     Business
Impact Analysis

3.     Recovery
Planning

4.     Testing
the plan

5.     Maintaining
the plan

Basic activities conducted by my organization are
policy making which is known as Contingency Planning Policy. As part of this
policy making my organization has a team of members who are responsible to
analyze the impact of business activities during a disaster situation from
which they come to know about the how much recovery time is needed in order to
restore all the business activities under such situation which is known as
Recovery Planning. Once they are done with the CPP, Business Impact Analysis
and Recovery Planning. IT team is available in my Organization who can test the
plan which is designed as part of CPP. As part of this testing plan they do
some random attacks on my client sites and the other team which is known as
Recovery Planning Team they do activities related to restore the core business
activities from which they can estimate the recovery time. My Client also
follow On-site and Off-site location strategy in order not to impact business
processes if any natural disaster occurs at one of those locations. This also
comes as part of Disaster Recovery Planning and they allocate separate monthly
budget to all those locations depending on the employees working at those
locations, training needed to all the employees in order to handle such
disaster situations. All such locations have both BCP and DRP teams so they can
conduct all the maintenance work related to business activities comes under
maintaining the plan.

During maintenance work at my client’s location they
do backup of all critical business documents to a secured Cloud Database. As
part of disaster recovery planning at alternate site locations they do identify
the critical assets which are needed for their daily business activities and do
a secured backup. In case of any disaster the recovery team will be able to
restore all the critical data needed for business use from Cloud Database. They
also have secured roles allotted in order to access the data which is secured
in the Cloud Database. The strategy which is executed by my Client in alternate
site relocation identification is they listed few geographic locations on the
globe where we have less natural disasters occurring compared to other
locations depending on the present statistics and planning to arrange that as
alternate site location.

In order to setup that as alternate site location,
they ask team to analyze how their business is getting impacted due to this
relocation criteria and how to handle such scenarios so that it will not impact
the economy to the Organization.

There are few limitation in the BRP and DRP which my
client is following when comes to Budget check for monthly as they have so many
alternate operating sites which will leads to hire so many employees and train
them to maintain the both Business Recovery Planning Disaster Recovery planning
activities.
