Traditional methods of business continuity planning are not adequately meeting the needs of the increasingly complex challenges of today. Adaptive business continuity is moving away from checking a box towards a proactive approach to limit any unexpected interruption of service. There is a growing need to be proactive instead of reactive to the increasing threats that are undermining business operations. Assessing and revamping of a business continuity program ensures that organizations are prepared when an incident causes potential disruption.
Inadvertent human error. Hardware failure. Loss of power. Cyber-attacks and malware. Businesses experience data loss for a variety of reasons, many of them unexpected. Whether it's something as simple as an employee opening an infected email or a natural disaster such as a major hurricane, it's essential to have plans in place to minimize the length and the resulting impact of any disruption. Business impact analysis is a component of business continuity planning that predicts the potential impact of a disruption of services within a business and gathers information needed to develop recovery strategies.

A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is the process of creating a system of prevention and recovery in the event of a significant disruption, whether caused by a flood, fire, or any other disaster. The BCP is developed in advance and involves input from company executives and key personnel.
Many BCPs use decision trees to help employees become familiar with a variety of potential disasters that could trigger a business continuity event and what actions need to be taken for every process and function that could be adversely affected.
