MBC-101 BCM / ISO22301 Awareness and Audit Techniques
Schedule and Hours
Planning for emergencies cannot be considered reliable until it is exercised and has proved to be workable, especially since false confidence may be placed in the integrity of a written plan.
Generally, participants in exercises should have an awareness of their roles and be reasonably comfortable with them, before they are subject to the stresses of an exercise. It tests procedures, not people. If staff are under-prepared, they may blame the plan, when they should blame their lack of preparation and training. An important aim of an exercise should be to make people feel more comfortable in their roles and to build morale.
The British Standards Institute (BSI) has published ISO 22301, a standard that clearly defines the process, principles and terminology of Business Continuity Management (BCM) and Business Continuity Plans (BCP).
On completion of this four day course, the participants will be able to successfully implement, manage and maintain business continuity plans and disaster recovery plans within their organization. By understanding the process involved in BCM, participants will also be better prepared to review and audit existing plans.
