Business Continuity Planning: A Proven Approach for Investment Firms
Business disruptions occur with or without warning, and the results can be predictable or unknown. Investment firms are increasingly designing Business Continuity Plans (BCP) that incorporate all aspects of their business. The primary objectives of a BCP plan are to minimize potential financial loss, allow for continued service to clients and partners, and diminish negative effects of disruption's on a firm's strategic plans, operations, market position and reputation.
Effective business continuity planning helps minimize the uncertainty associated with business disruptions by creating the framework for investment firms to maintain and recover business processes when operations are unexpectedly disrupted. This whitepaper will cover the basics of developing a business continuity plan, specifically, the four critical steps to successful BCP planning:
- Identify: Risk Assessment
- Analyze: Business Impact Analysis
- Design and Execution
- Measure: Plan Testing & Maintenance
