“Business continuity Planning”

  • Overview: Recent events have shown the importance of effective BCP
  • Learning outcome: Delegates will learn the key components of BCP, and the considerations thereof.

Business Continuity Planning (BCP) plays an integral part in building resilience. More recently, the importance of BCP has been emphasized significantly through our latest experience with Covid-19. The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of BCP in the wider sense of resilience, to explain the need for Business Continuity Planning and to introduce delegates to the concepts and principles needed to successfully implement a Business Continuity Plan in their organization.
