To choose your sample business continuity plan with accuracy, you need to understand what a sample business continuity plan does for starters. Ideally, a sample business continuity plan should ensure maximized service levels, efficient recovery from interruptions as well as minimized risk impacts.
 
There are many different web-based businesses out there providing you with sample business continuity plan and you need to be able to differentiate between them.

A sample business continuity plan is basically designed to be available on both Intranet and on paper. A sample business continuity plan should be flexible enough to allow the addition as well as removal of whole sections and subsets.

Where possible, topics are not longer than one page. A sample business continuity plan addresses each risk through a set of headings and these include:

The layout and use of a sample business continuity plan

  • Likely Scenario: Here the sample business continuity plan looks at the most probable reasons for the risks to cause harm.
  • Probability:  That is technically the likelihood of a risk occurring.
  • Impact: The sample business continuity plan also quantizes the risk as high, medium or low.
  • Functions Affected: That technically implies the investigation of those documents that will be affected by the impacts of the risks.
  • Action: A sample business continuity plan sets the direction for the course of action I the event of an interruption.
  • Responsibilities: This addresses the delegation of responsibilities.
  • Mitigation: The sample business continuity plan designs a risk management plan to minimize risks as best possible.
  • Constraints: these are basically the practicalities where dealing with a risk is concerned.
  • Resources: the implications for costs, staffing, facilities and so on.

The need for a sample business continuity plan

A sample business continuity plan addresses not only the major disasters that usually threaten the success of a business or project but also the routine interruptions such as computers going down for half an hour or something.

A sample business continuity plan puts disaster planning in perspective and makes the handling of disasters smoother than ever. A sample business continuity plan is designed after analyzing what is interrupted by a disaster rather than the why of the question.
