Business Continuity Planning Essentials

Practice Management and Business Skills

CPD Points 1

Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) are a critical – but often overlooked – aspect of risk management for businesses. This course will equip you to provide practical guidance to business clients implementing or updating their BCPs.

Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) help to ensure that a business can resume critical activities should a crisis, disaster or disruption interrupt or halt its operations. However, many businesses either do not have a BCP or have not reviewed it frequently enough for it to be useful.

As businesses evaluate their pandemic responses and work towards post-pandemic recovery, many are implementing a BCP for the first time while others are reviewing and updating their BCPs. Lawyers can play a valuable role in advising clients on BCPs, helping them to identify relevant risks, develop appropriate action plans and put in place suitable policies and procedures.

This course will equip you to provide practical guidance to business clients implementing a new BCP or updating an existing BCP. It provides a six step framework for creating, implementing and testing BCPs, as well as practical examples on how to document BCPs.
