Business continuity planning (BCP) is the practice of planning how you will run your service or business unit processes when normal operating procedures are not possible. BCP is the process of taking a snapshot of all the functions your department performs on an annual basis. And, listing the resources required to perform those processes. A continuity plan is like a road map to recovery.
The goal of continuity planning is to enable you to continue your mission despite a disaster or crisis. Some departments will be expected not only to continue but also to expand their services during these times.
All Indiana University departments on all campuses are required to develop Business Continuity Plan(s) for their business processes.
