Hello,

Are there any members that have a Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Plans in place? We are at the early stage of developing ours and would appreciate if someone can share their plan or a basic template for reference.
Thanks in advance.

Attached is my first draft of our plan. It is a 3 part plan, incorporating emergency planning, business continuity and IT disaster recovery. Not a completely finished product, but far enough along that I am willing to share it. Keep in mind, the first step in any continuity plan is a risk assessment, and then the second is an analysis of the identified risks. What I and my firm identify as a risk, may not be a risk to you and your firm, or not the same assessment of the risk. Hope it is helpful. The best resource for this is the CFMA Emergency Planning seminar / workbook put together by Cal Beyer and Brian Cooney.

Oh, by the way, the week after I completed this document, we had a microburst storm in Phoenix and the metal roof blew off our office building. Although a little groggy at midnight when the police called, the first thing I thought of is ... where's my book ? I was glad I had gone through the thought process, it helped get us back up and operational quicker.

Good Morning,
