Prepare for the worst and plan for recovery

Everything you want to know about Business Continuity guides you through a range of standards relating to business continuity management (BCM) and disaster recovery, with particular reference to ISO 22301. It shows you how to develop a modern response to the operational risk landscape and how to prepare your organization for interruptions to your key activities, minimizing the impact on your bottom line, reputation, and credibility.

Product overview

Aside from having a recovery plan in place, there are other advantages to developing an effective BCM strategy. When things go wrong, senior managers are expected to be able to account for the decisions that they took, or didn’t take, when times were better. Business continuity plans and arrangements developed on best-practice lines are far more likely to protect directors in the face of any post-incident inquiry. Any company can say that it has a business continuity plan, but those that can demonstrate resilience based on best-practice principles will surely have the edge over those that cannot.
