Business Continuity Planning


However hard an organisation tries to mitigate or avoid risk altogether, events can arise that simply lie beyond its control. Such events can threaten an organisation’s very existence. Senior managers, board members and indeed all managers and staff members need to plan in advance against such threats.

Business Continuity Planning is not an optional extra. It should be part of any organisation’s overall approach to risk management. However remote the possibility of a major incident occurring is – it should still be planned for.

For those in management roles business continuity planning training is a must.

This business continuity planning training workshop is designed for anyone with input into the formulation of the Business Continuity Plan, from dedicated risk managers and senior managers and team leaders down.

Our business continuity planning training workshop takes delegates through all the various stages in the formulation of a Business Continuity Plan.
