Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Boot Camp:
Getting Started: This class goes through the functions that support any recovery program. It will describe a full Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery program and will define functions of a project. These steps of the project will be both specific to the BC / DR effort and some will be complimentary to better understanding of what your organization requires.
Business Impact Analysis: This class helps to understand the Business Impact Analysis and the process that is used as a guideline for determining what is required and setting the goals and objectives of the analysis. It also will cover impacts of losing business functions and capability of performing critical function without certain assets. Samples of Questionnaires will be supplied.
Risk Assessment: This class defines processes that support the examination of the cause and effect of a host of possible natural, man-made, political, and technological threats (causes) which could interrupt critical business and/or damage or destroy (effects) valuable corporate assets or resources causing a loss to the business. This class also covers operational risk such as a requirement for recovery that has not been addressed in the recovery plans. The class will also cover report writing.
Planning: This class will describe how to write Business Contingency and IT plans and how to prioritize procedures that define how a business will continue or recover its critical functions in the event of an unplanned disruption to normal processing. Tasks and team assignments will be discussed. With the data gathered from the BIA and Risk Assessment process, planning for all business units can effectively be written. The recovery plans will address and provide the requirements and actions (tasks) needed during a disaster to continue business. The class will support the approaches that ensure all issues are considered, how to provide a level playing field for establishing priorities between business units, and simplifying all tasks to better understand the roles that employees must adhere to in a given time frame. A sample plan will be available.
Strategy and Vendor Selections: This class will cover the importance of understanding your comprehensive business strategy and the strategies that are required for business units to support the approach and direction for the company’s path to recovery. This class will also include sample strategies and how to understand the balance between acceptable expenditures vs peace of mind.
