New addition to the IT Governance catalogue: Validating Your Business Continuity Plan


The international information security experts IT Governance have added a new title to their catalogue: Validating Your Business Continuity Plan – Ensuring your BCP actually works by Robert A Clark.
Disruptive incidents can affect any organisation and occur at any moment. ICT outages, cyber attacks, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, pandemics, supply chain failures and other unexpected events can all affect productivity and, in many cases, place a company’s survival in serious jeopardy.
A business continuity plan (BCP) is essential to overcoming business disruptions, but too many companies prepare BCPs and then shelve them, only for their plans to fail when they’re actually needed.
Validating Your Business Continuity Plan helps organisations ensure the success of their BCPs by examining the three essential components of validation: exercising, maintenance and review.
It outlines a controlled and systematic approach to BCP validation while considering each component, covering methods and techniques such as table-top reviews, workshops and live rehearsals.
The book also takes account of industry standards and guidelines to help steer the reader through the BCP validation process, including the international standard ISO 22301 and the Business Continuity Institute’s Good Practice Guidelines.
In addition, it provides a number of case studies based on the author’s considerable experience – some of them successful, others less so – to highlight common pitfalls and problems associated with the validation process.
