Business Continuity Exercises and Tests. Delivering Successful Exercise Programmes with ISO 22301 (Second Edition)

Business continuity management is all about having in place effective plans to ensure that your business can continue to meet its obligations in the face of a disruption. An appropriate exercise programme will enable you to test your plans and give you the confidence that they will work should an incident occur.

Successful exercises will develop your people’s capabilities and test your technical, logistical, administrative and procedural systems. They can also highlight elements of your planning that are incomplete or need changing. If your plan is in good shape, an exercise will test and prove it, generating high levels of confidence throughout your organization that you are well placed to withstand disruptions.

‘Business Continuity Exercises and Tests’ will take you on a journey from the inception of an exercise programme, right through to running an event and beyond. Getting senior management involved in business continuity is often a challenge. Delivering well-run exercises will raise consciousness from the boardroom to the shop floor and help make the work of those in business continuity valued and understood.

Based on the requirements set out in the new international standard for business continuity management – ISO 22301 – and delivering tried and tested templates, techniques and tips, this book is the essential guide to exercising and testing your business continuity plans to ensure that they work when it matters most.
