Planning & Running Business Continuity Exercises

Course Overview

As more and more departments develop business continuity plans, the pressure increases on the business continuity manager to conduct more exercises to meet the requirements laid out in the organisation's business continuity policy.

The aim of the training is to give business continuity coordinators and other business continuity staff the skills, tools and confidence to plan, run and report their own exercises.
