Will your current Business Continuity or Disaster Recovery Plan really do the job?
With the ever increasing operational risks, many UK private and public sector organisations have developed a Business Continuity or Disaster Plan to enable them to recover from the disruption caused by an unforeseen event. These risks are many and complex and include natural disasters, economic factors, IT failure, civil emergencies, terrorism and cybercrime.
But given the growth in Business Continuity Planning, why do so many organisations (large and small) still fail to recover?
The experience of our Business Continuity consultants has shown that many BCP plans fail as a result of the following:
- Inadequate planning with insufficient details
- Lack of consideration of the complete needs of an organisation
- Inadequate testing or practice drills
- Failure to gain support from senior-level managers and directors
BS25999, the Business Continuity Management standard defines the specification and best practice guidelines to develop an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).
To ensure your organisation adopts best practice and becomes fully complaint to BS25999, we would like to invite you to book on the 2- day BS25999 Certified BCMS Lead Implementer training course to be held in London on 16-17th May.

Update on New ISO22301 Standard
Our trainer on this course will also take the opportunity to update you on the status and content of the new ISO22301 Societal Security – Business Continuity Management Systems standard due for release in the next few months. The good news is that it is almost completely based on BS25999 and compliance to the new standard is relatively straightforward.
