  • 2. www.piit.co.uk Why is Business Continuity Planning Important? • BCPs are critical to the transparent and continuous operation of all types of businesses • Analysts claim two out of five businesses that experience a disaster will go out of business within five years of the event • The ability of an organization to recover from a disaster is directly related to the degree of BCP that has taken place BEFORE the disaster • BCPs more important as companies’ reliance on technology increases. • more emphasis on IT and communication services • to help manage supply chains • less tolerant of information and service loss • Organisations must plan for the recovery of key business functions, using priorities and timescales derived from assessed risks and accompanying data. • BCPs must cover IT, data and voice communications as well as for essential personnel and offsite locations. • BCPs must consider people and accommodations in which they can work.
  • 3. www.piit.co.uk Why is there greater emphasis now given to BCP? • Creating and maintaining a BCP helps ensure that an institution has the resources and information needed to deal with these emergencies: • Natural disasters such as storms, floods and fire • Accidents • Sabotage • Terrorism • Power and energy disruptions • Communications, transportation, safety and service sector failure • Environmental disasters, pollution and hazardous materials spills • Cyber attacks and hacker activity • Business Continuity Planning is at or near the top of CEO and CTO concerns
  • 4. www.piit.co.uk What did recent events teach us? • Plans must be updated and tested frequently • All types of threats must be considered • Dependencies and interdependencies should be carefully analysed • Key personnel may be unavailable • Telecommunications are essential • Alternate sites for IT backup should not be situated close to the primary site • Employee support (counselling) is important • Copies of plans should be stored at a secure off-site location • Sizable security perimeters may surround the scene of incidents involving national security or law enforcement, and can impede personnel from returning to buildings • Increased uncertainty (following a high impact disruption such as terrorism) may lengthen time until normal operations are restored
  • 5. www.piit.co.uk Business Need • Tracking plans via paper document and email was difficult • Working out requirements for DR locations was cumbersome and needed a separate spreadsheet to maintain • No clear view of who was actively managing and maintaining plans • Data terminology – such as location names - was inconsistent across different departments • KPI reporting was a manual process that took days to create • A single source to hold information that would be accessible in a DR situation
  • 6. www.piit.co.uk Uses a simple form to enter data BCP in ServiceNow
  • 7. www.piit.co.uk Each business activity entered as a Statement of Requirements capturing key information such as Recovery Point and Time Objectives, Activity performed, number of FTE’s BCP in ServiceNow
  • 8. www.piit.co.uk Once Statements of Requirements have been entered shows a quick view of what would be required from a remote facility if a plan was activated BCP in ServiceNow
  • 9. www.piit.co.uk Provides consistent view of core process BCP in ServiceNow
  • 10. www.piit.co.uk Quick views of all plans and Statement of Requirements BCP in ServiceNow
  • 11. www.piit.co.uk Configurable compliance checks to create KPI dashboard BCP in ServiceNow
  • 12. www.piit.co.uk • Single source of information • SaaS hosted so available from any location that can access the internet • Plans can be managed; last reviewed on, tested on, as well as being used for holding the plan activities; escalation, return to work • Provides real-time information on the data held within a BCP for in the moment KPI reporting • Uses existing ServiceNow data structure to track plans against Locations, Departments and Business Services • Changes and amendments are audited and can be tracked • Notifications sent on when review periods are reached • Remote location requirements in a DR scenario available in a couple of clicks • Can be linked to ServiceNow IT GRC to handle remediations in missing data Benefits
