What is Business Continuity?
Business Continuity is the capability of your organisation to continue delivery of products or services at an acceptable and pre-agreed level following a disruptive event.
A BCP sets out your strategies and accepted level of capabilities following a series of scenarios. This plan should be well documented and accessible to everyone.

For others it allows peace of mind that quick responses can be made to a number of disaster scenarios to keep the business servicing its customers.
