BCP Template

I am using the 27001 templates and I’m looking at creating a Business Continuity Policy as part of ISO 27001 mandatory documentation. However, when I go into A.17_Business Continuity, there is no BCP template, only a Disaster Recovery Plan. Will a DRP be ok to cover the BCP for ISO 27001 compliance or will I need to complete both? Kind regards, Andy

Answer: ISO 27001 aspects on business continuity process (section A.17 from ISO 27001 Annex A) are related to ensuring the availability of information and information systems during either crisis or disaster situations, so a full Business Continuity Plan is not mandatory for this standard, and you will only need the DRP template included in your toolkit.

This article will provide you further explanation about DRP and BCP:
