What is Business Continuity Planning?

Business Continuity Planning provides strategy and protocols for responding to and recovering from impacts related to disasters, both large and small. Your plan will define recovery objectives and targets for essential operational functions. 

Steps for Completing a UC Ready Business Continuity Plan

  • Delegate a primary and secondary Business Continuity Coordinator (BCC)
  • BCCs request access to UC Ready (see above)
  • Register for BCC training at the UC Learning Center, query "OES" to locate listings
  • After training, receive the UC Ready User Manual and Resumption Annex
  • Consider forming a Business Continuity ad-hoc committee to facilitate collaborative continuity planning
  • Share your plan with the campus Business Continuity Planner
  • Drill and exercise your continuity plan. Emergency Services can assist with planning and facilitating emergency and continuity drills.
