Please note that department-oriented plans (e.g., IT plan, Facilities plan, HR plan, etc.) are the easiest way for mid-size companies like yours.

From our experience, the optimal structure for large companies is the following:

  • one top-level document called Business Continuity Plan, where you define the crisis management plan, and the general rules by which all continuity activities will abide, ensuring all plans are aligned.
  • separated Incident Response Plans for describing how you would respond to different incidents, covering related activities required by all areas of the organization.
  • recovery plans for describing how to recover each of your processes/departments/projects in case of a disruption, also covering related activities required by all areas of the organization. For IT operations this plan is commonly known as the Disaster Recovery Plan
