Developing Successful Business Continuity Plans

The FMI Regina Chapter invites you to join us to explore the ever more important issue of business continuity plans in organizations. Our presenter is Gustavo Meschler of MNP.

A disruption or crisis can have long-term effects on the financial, operational, and overall health of an organization. Many organizations do not have adequate programs in place to ensure continuity of operations that will protect the enterprise in the event of a crisis and satisfy the expectations of Board members and key stakeholders. Today, organizations must be able to do more than just recover business processes and technology after a disruption.

This session will explore:

  • Key components to implement a Business Continuity Program based on ISO 22301 Standard.
  • How to perform an Business Impact Analysis and determine Critical Business Functions to provide the foundation for the Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”).
  • Approach for the documentation of a BCP and considerations for a Disaster Recovery Plan (to recover a business IT infrastructure).
