Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

Interruptions to important business functions and processes are costly. The main purpose of continuity of operations planning is the same for all organizations: to make certain your program functions without interruption during a disaster. Effective continuity of operations planning activities range from understanding the organization, to identifying essential functions and support requirements, to validating the plan through simulation exercises.
