A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a document that outlines the steps a business would take to continue operations in the event of a disaster or emergency. It includes strategies for maintaining or restoring critical business functions, such as communication, IT systems, supply chain, and customer service. The plan should also include a list of resources needed to carry out the plan, such as personnel, technology, and funds.
