Considering specifically the threat of hackers and cybersecurity, the first thing you should consider is performing a business impact analysis (BIA), to identify how business services and processes would be impacted by disruptions caused by such threats.

After identifying how business services and processes would be affected, then you can start planning your BCP/DRP, considering the most impacted services and processes. According to ISO 22301, a Business Continuity Plan must contain:

  • Purpose, scope, and users
  • Reference documents
  • Assumptions
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Key contacts
  • Plan activation and deactivation
  • Communication plan
  • Incident response
  • Physical sites and transportation
  • Order of recovery for activities
  • Recovery plans for activities
  • Disaster recovery plan
  • Required resources
  • Restoring and resuming activities from temporary measures
