    Business Interruption Life Cycle

    Disaster Recovery TemplateBusiness Interruption Life Cycle  

    A business interruption has a life cycle; that is, it starts small and could potentially become a disaster of epic proportion, depending on its duration. The longer an interruption is, the more that the company's operations are affected. Your organization's response should shift as an incident evolves from threat to emergency to crisis to disaster. It is one thing to say access to contract data isn't essential for a day or two, but what about a week or two? This is why it's important to protect more than just data. Now that you know what processes are critical to the operation of your business, you can consider threats according to their impact on those critical processes. To help you mitigate impact to your core processes, your plan should address three key phases:

    • Business Continuity Response - these are the steps you take immediately to sustain your core processes, your primary business priorities
    • Disaster Recovery Response - these are the steps you take to extend your core processes indefinitely and addresses your secondary priorities
    • Restoration Planning Response -  these are the steps you take to restore your business to its pre-incident level
