HOW TO PREPARE ENTERPRISE CRITICAL BUSINESS PROCESS-ORIENTED CONTINGENCY AND BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANS CS-9NEW 2-DAY WORKSHOP
IT-oriented contingency plans are Insufficient to Protect Critical Business Processes
Organizations have heretofore become proficient at developing contingency planning and recovery plans to protect the information systems that are important to protect modern computer system-dependent companies. The emphasis was on protection against the very conventional threats of fire, flooding, short power outages and computer equipment failures.
The Year 2000 and the SEC regulation opened managements and IT managers eyes to the fact that the existing plans are not adequate to protect the continuity of the "most critical or core business processes" that are truly responsible for the very survival of the organization.
We come to the realization that an IT-oriented contingency plan no matter how well conceived, documented and tested cannot respond to the need to protect the very business. Such plans are insular and intended to merely protect IT operations continuity. Besides, the IT contingency plan cannot, jurisdictionally, encompass the very specific details of how to actually continue to take orders and deliver products or services to customers who are truly the key for the financial health and the very viability of the company.
What is needed is to develop "enterprise, critical business process- oriented" contingency plans that impact the whole organization and involve personnel from all critical business processes in their preparation. Under this key concept, the IT contingency plan is but a component or sub-element of the whole aggregate "enterprise and business contingency and continuity plan".
This unique seminar and workshop is the only available seminar designed to provide you with the principles and practices of how to develop enterprise, business process-oriented contingency and continuity plans in only two days.
The seminar is based on our extensive consulting and training efforts assisting top companies develop this type of far more encompassing and responsive plans to a much broader array of threats and risks beyond fire, water damage and earthquake. It answers the needs of modern and complex organizations. The time is now for your organization to start developing enterprise-wide contingency plans and expand the very limited view that most prevailing IT contingency plans now encompass.
