Business continuity and emergency planning

Business Continuity Planning (BCP) enables the business owner to develop plans for the continuation of a business or service following an unforeseen incident or event that prevents normal everyday operations.  Disruptions to normal business may be due to threats such as environmental factors, power outages, and employee illness.
