The Continuity Planning Process: 

Continuity Planning is concerned with the development and implementation of a continuity strategy to reduce the damage a risk could inflict if it occurs. The first step of the Continuity Planning is to develop a strategy that fills the gap between the Business Impact Assessment and Continuity Planning stage.

Strategy Development: During the strategy development stage, the BCP team must identify which risks will be handled by the business continuity plan based on the prioritized list created in the previous phases.

The team needs to contend with all the contingencies for the implementation of provisions and protocols required for zero downtime in the event of each and every possible risk. This requires a review of the maximum tolerable downtime (MTD) estimates so the team can decide which risks are deemed acceptable and which risks must attempt to be alleviated by BCP continuity provisions.

Once the BCP team has established which risks require mitigation and the scope of resources to be used for each mitigation task, the next stage of Continuity Planning, namely the provisions and processes stage may begin.

Provisions and Processes: The provisions and processes stage is the crux of Continuity Planning. Here, the BCP team develops procedures and methods that will alleviate risks declared unacceptable during the Strategy Development stage.

Through the application of provisions and processes, these are three groups of assets that must be safeguarded:
