Evaluating Your Business Continuity Plan: Beyond Checklists and Walkthroughs

September 10

Learn to identify Business Continuity Plan enhancements that will better prepare your organization for a disaster.

Increasing regulatory scrutiny. Escalating threats. Evolving best practices. While the demands on your Business Continuity Plan (BCP) have never been greater, it can be difficult to accurately assess just how effective your BCP really is.

This topic examines the entire Business Continuity Planning process to identify critical aspects of a recovery plan that directly impact its effectiveness. The recovery planning concepts reviewed will allow you to differentiate between a recovery plan that will merely satisfy a checklist and one that will truly allow your organization to survive a disaster.

Upon completion of this material, you will understand how to evaluate your organization's entire Business Continuity Planning Program - so that you can identify enhancements that should be implemented before a disaster strikes.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to describe the most critical steps of the business continuity planning process.

- You will be able to identify BCP enhancements that will better prepare your organization for a disaster.

- You will be able to recognize weaknesses that may inhibit the effectiveness of your business continuity plan (BCP).

- You will be able to review your organization's overall business continuity planning program.
