Audit of business continuity planning: Em20-69/2017E-PDF

“As part of Treasury Board’s policy instruments on government security, departments must establish a Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Program. The intent of the Program is to plan for the continued availability of services and associated assets that are critical to the health, safety, security or economic well-being of Canadians, or to the effective functioning of government. BCP is a preventive control that builds resiliency before disaster strikes. As per Treasury Board’s Operational Security Standard on BCP Program, business continuity plans are required for all services that, if interrupted, would result in a high degree of injury to Canadians or the working of government. The objective of this audit was to determine whether the Department has adequately planned for the continued availability of its critical services"--Background, p. 1.
