The Business Recovery Phase will either follow directly on from the Disaster Recovery Phase or will be directly initiated after a serious emergency incident affecting normal business operations which does not need a Disaster Recovery Phase.
The Business Recovery Phase involves the restoration of normal business operations after an unexpected event which has disrupted all or part of the business process. From a business perspective, this is the most critical phase of the whole BCP. The efficiency and effectiveness of the procedures contained within this section could have a direct bearing on the organisation's ability to survive the emergency.
This Chapter of the BCP deals firstly with the management of the business recovery process and secondly with the procedures to be followed for restoring each of the individual business processes. A significant task during the Business Recovery Phase is the assessment of damage to property, contents and systems.
