This week we have the 1st part of a 3 part series talking about testing our BCP/DR plans and maintaining our programs. The focus will be on getting Buy-In and the showing the Value of BCM programs, as well as providing some tips on how to test for people availability issues.
In this week’s episode we talk with Communications Specialist Janine Sakatch, who’ll talk about one of the most important aspects of all Business Continuity Management and Disaster Recovery Planning Programs – Communications!
Good communications is needed in all aspects of live, let alone when a disaster occurs. Tune in and get some great insight into what some would call ‘the glue that holds it all together.’
We’re happy to announce that we now have updated Business Continuity Management (BCM) document templates available at http://www.stone-road.com. We’ve removed the older 2003 versions, and now have everything in a 2010 version.
We are happy to announce that ebook / Kindle versions of all books by StoneRoad founder A.Alex Fullick, are now available from Amazon.com (and other Global Amazon sites).
We hope these information sources help you with your Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery Program efforts. Keep your eyes open for more BCM / DR information sources coming from A.Alex Fullick and StoneRoad.
