What is Business Continuity?
Business continuity is the key discipline that sits at the heart of building and improving the resilience oforganizations.
It is a tried and tested methodology that an organization should adopt as part of its overall approach to managing risks and threats. Business continuity management identifies an organization’s priorities and prepares solutions to address disruptive threats. An effective business continuity programme supports the strategic objectives of the organization and pro- actively builds the capability to continue business operations in the event of disruption. The programme includes the identification of risks and threats, the creation of response structures and plans to address incidents and crises, and promotes validation and continuous improvement.
Nowadays, regulatory bodies and government emphasize on the operational recovery and resilience for all impacted stakeholders due to unexpected crisis/ incidents, political unrest (e.g. BREIXT) and civil disturbance (e.g. Occupy Central in Hong Kong SAR in 2014, “Yellow Vest” in France in 2018), pandemics, power/ system outages or even terrorist/ cyber-attacks (e.g. DDoS, ransomware), etc.
This course is designed for new and experienced BCM practitioners, executives, managers, business continuity planners and business unit staff who are involved in or manage business continuity planning functions, especially from MNCs, government and financial institutions. It is also highly useful for internal and external auditors, security managers, records managers, information technology managers, crisis managers, senior IT staff, administrative heads, and others responsible for the administration of any size of organization.
