As mentioned earlier, not all damages from unforeseen circumstances are covered by your insurance.
For example, if there is an outbreak in your warehouse that causes most of your employees to miss a few days of work (which then affects production, distribution, customer satisfaction and retention, etcetera), the loss in income might not be covered by your policy.
To make the business continuity management process easier, people seek out alternatives, such as software, templates, checklists or consultants.
While each of these options can build a plan and its associated program elements, too often these tools are used to get something done quickly.
After analyzing your plan and creating a solution design, you need to test them so that you can get organizational acceptance.
In this portion of the presentation, you need to lay out three important things: 1) the emergency action steps that are needed to be taken in case of an incident, 2) your business recovery phase, and 3) your recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives, both in the near term and long term.
You need to include 1) the type of incidents that could launch the plan, 2) your emergency response and management, 3) your plan reviews and maintenance, and 4) how you plan to send notifications regarding an incident affecting the site.
In your solution design, you need to discuss in more detail how you're planning to execute your plan.
Therefore, you want them to be fully knowledgeable about the plan, and you also want to make sure that they agree with it.
This portion discusses in more detail what your plan is about.
