Workshop Overview

Business Continuity Management promotes the ability to recover business activities following a significant event in the supply chain, in the business facility or in the process. Successful Business Continuity Management enables the resumption of supplies or services to your clients, safeguarding both cash flow and the viability of the business.

The masterclass programme builds on the international standard ISO 22301:2012, Societal security – Business continuity management systems – Requirements, drafted by an international panel of experts and reflecting international best practice in the discipline.

This masterclass programme will encourage delegates to review their business processes, identify potential fragilities and the necessary countermeasures to ensure that business continuity is maintained and that recovery to normal levels of operation can be effected promptly.
