About the Course

If a sudden crisis affects an organisation the potential for loss is enormous. Many organisations have developed detailed business continuity plans as the best way to prepare and to cope efficiently with unexpected, high-impact events.

There are a myriad of differing approaches to implementing BCM, so just how effective is a particular organisation’s preparedness?

This course will show you how to audit, review and benchmark a business continuity management process using established standards guidelines and techniques to allow conclusions to be drawn on the effectiveness of BCM implementation.
