Areas Covered:

Successful business continuity planning involves the entire organization. It requires clear and consistent communication and encompasses how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. An effective BCP prepares the organization for disruptive events.

Why is a BCP Important?

Data suggest that 61% of companies surveyed had to invoke their BCP out of which 43% had to invoke it more than once. The key causes were natural disaster, power outage, IT failure, flood, fire, telecom failure, utility outage, and pandemic.

The critical lessons learned from invocation were:

  • There had not been enough training and awareness efforts across the company:
  • Plans didn’t adequately address emergency communications
  • Key staff had not been included in testing; as a result they did not know their roles and responsibilities in the plans:
  • Cyber attacks

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to Audit the Business Continuity Management System based on ISO 22301, Disaster Recovery Institute, and others
  • Learn the correlation between ISO 22301 and other frameworks and standards
  • Learn how to audit Business Continuity Practice Areas

Who will Benefit:

  • Auditors
  • Internal Auditors
  • Risk Managers
  • Compliance Managers
  • Planners
  • Board of directors
  • VP
  • CFO
  • CEO
