Abstract

A business continuity plan gathers dust on a shelf in your office. Now what? This workshop provides guidelines that take your business continuity plan from mere sheets of paper in a binder to a guide that leads your organization through a process to fully restore operations following any disaster. Discover how to ensure that internal and external supply chain requirements are fully met. Highlights include making a plan user-friendly, training people and testing plans, and the importance of internal or external audits in maintaining and improving an effective business continuity program. Participate in a tabletop exercise scenario and conclude with a review of the overall business continuity planning cycle as it relates to the supply chain.
