ResilientBCM – Keeping the ball in play
Alberto G. Alexander, PhD, MBCI, presents an overview of different BCM exercise methods and offers a methodology for designing and managing exercises within the context of business continuity management.
It is hard to believe that our armed forces, national guards, policemen and firemen would not exercise to validate that they could perform according to certain standards when required. The same is valid for business continuity management systems (BCMS). One of the oldest axioms for BCMS is that a plan that is not tested or maintained is of little value or in some cases worse than no plan at all. It is absolutely crucial that all the people who are expected to play a part in the business continuity management (BCM) arrangements understand their roles and feel reasonably comfortable with them.
