Your employees are your most important and valuable asset. In any emergency, in addition to its systems recoveries, the organisation will rely on its employees to enable it to recover normal business operations in the minimum amount of time. You will also rely on your main suppliers of critical goods and services to continue to support recovery of your business operations through to normal operating mode.
Your Disaster Recovery Plan and your BCP will rely principally on key members of management and staff who will provide the technical and management skills necessary to achieve a smooth business recovery process. These key members of management or staff will be hand picked and will be responsible for the implementation of the BCP in the event of an emergency. A well-organised and structured approach will avoid the unexpected crisis deteriorating into chaos.
This section of the BCP will contain information on who should be contacted in the event of an emergency, and how to contact keys suppliers and also key staff, and other employees.
