Business Continuity Planning (BCP) indicates how well an organization prepares itself to survive in unexpected disasters, disruptions or changes, assuring that the critical business processes will continue to function in most adverse circumstances with acceptable limitations. BCP is also one of the domains of Information Security management. It has been emphasized by BS 25999 standard that an organization must have a Business Continuity (BC) program in place to fulfill its obligations in this world of uncertainty. The main objectives are that in all unusual situations the business should sustain, maintain regulatory compliances and deliver its products and services with minimum losses to its employees, customers, vendors, and to the society at large. This paper illustrates the concept of BCP along with its implication to business in adverse circumstances and enunciates a methodology about how a Business Continuity Planning framework can be established in an organization.
