A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a strategic plan that outlines businesses' prevention and recovery from major disruptions to the business. Typically, businesses establish a continuity plan for disasters, such as floods, arson, and terrorism.
However, the UK Government Cabinet Office along with associated regional risk registers continue to report (Influeza type) pandemics as the highest risk and impact facing the UK, yet it appears we are left ill prepared for the Coronavirus outbreak.
This has presented businesses with many challenges coupled with rapid spreading and the global reach of this virus. More and more businesses are looking to improve their continuity plan to better prepare for the impact of COVID-19.
During 2019, 9.4 million UK resident travelled abroad along with 4.1 million visits from overseas residents into the UK were recorded (source: ons.gov.uk). This coupled with the continuing risk analysis from the Cabinet Office regarding Pandemics, this will happen again.
All businesses should develop a robust Business Continuity Plan. This should be a detailed plan-of-action that defines any and all risks that can affect the businesses' customers, employees, operations and profits.
