Business continuity planning (BCP) is the practice of establishing how a service or business unit will function when normal operating procedures are not possible. All Indiana University departments on all campuses are required to develop Business Continuity Plan(s). Natural disasters and weather events cannot be controlled, but thorough planning can minimize the disruption to operations. Continuity plans that prioritize critical and unique functions, activities or services lower risks for the department or office. A well-detailed plan maps the way from disruption to resumption and back to normal operations.
