BS25999 training essential for implementing a business continuity plan

02/01/2012

Many organisations are preparing themselves for the London 2012 Olympic Games when business is expected to grow considerably. One thing organisations must be aware of is the likelihood of disruptions to business caused by public transport disruptions, traffic jams and road changes. Power failure, or problems with Internet provision, are also possible.

Planning, developing and implementing a business continuity management system (BCMS) will help organisations respond to the risks associated with the London 2012 Olympic Games, as well as other risks which may result from bad weather and natural disasters.

The  BS25999 Certified BCMS Lead Implementer Masterclass from IT Governance is the most effective and efficient way to train employees in implementing a BCMS. The purpose of the class is to help organisations identify potential threats, create a framework for building resilience, mitigate risk and safeguard their critical assets. The course will enable employees to prepare a BCMS, compliant with the BS25999 Standard, which ensures business can continue operating ‘as usual’ in the case of disruption.

The information provided during the course will be relevant to the new ISO22301 Standard which is to replace BS25999. The trainer will be covering the new Standard and explaining how pursuing BS25999 now can be an early, easy start to preparing for ISO22301 certification.

Customers, investors and stakeholders increasingly require reassurance that businesses are cyber resilient, particularly in the current difficult economic climate. Certification to the BS25999 Standard can give an organisation a competitive edge, whilst well-trained in-house staff can save organisations time and money.

The next BS25999 Certified BCMS Lead Implementer Masterclass takes place on 16–17 May 2012. The course is worth 14 CPE credits, making attendance on this course a career-enhancing move for IT, security and business continuity professionals. There are still a few places available on the course in May which is offered at a 30% discount: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1435.

Previous classes have received very positive feedback from delegates. One delegate commented, ‘The course was excellent and filled the gaps in knowledge and context. I would strongly advise that this be attended well before any real start to an implementation project ...’

The BS25999 Certified BCMS Lead Implementer Masterclass takes delegates from theory to practice, offering the opportunity to question and pre-plan for business continuity in their organisation, using the BS25999 Standard and examples of good practice. When they complete the course, delegates will be able to implement and maintain a business continuity management system (BCMS) within their own organisation, so that it can survive and thrive in an increasingly difficult environment.
