Advanced Business Continuity Management & Scenario Planning - Online
Course Description
BTS is pleased to present their inaugural Business Continuity Management and Scenario Planning programme. This dynamic 5-day intensive event will cover all major aspects of effective Business Continuity Management for corporations and government organizations regardless of size or sector.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

Importantly the seminar will also incorporate the new ISO Business Continuity Standard 22301/2012 which will now replace BS25999-2.

BCM is now regarded as a holistic corporate business activity that the business owns and drives and is applicable to all organizations. BCM can provide the strategic and operational framework to review the way it provides its products and services and increase its resilience to disruption, interruption or loss when an incident or a crisis occurs.  The key to a successful recovery is time. The organization which recovers in the shortest possible time will mitigate its losses to the optimum. Scenario Planning has recently gained much adherence in industry and military for developing effective Strategic and BCM capabilities. Above all, it is a tool for collective learning, reframing perceptions and managing uncertainty. This programme will ensure your decision makers choose the correct outcomes, not by looking at the multitude of possible scenarios but based on the loss or unavailability of key resources, regardless of the circumstances.

Training Objective

This seminar is designed for professionals at all levels who are involved in or have been given the responsibility of business continuity planning and disaster recovery functions. It is also highly useful for internal and external auditors, IT and telecommunication managers, administrative and operational heads and others responsible for the effective administration and preparedness of any size of organization. It is particularly suitable for individuals new to business continuity planning or for business continuity planners who wish to improve their knowledge and skills.
