Absolute Business Continuity - Keeping business together

Exercise & Maintain - Reporting

An out of date plan is of little use. Therefore a maintenance plan must me developed to ensure that all aspects of BCP are maintained.

For example some maintenance activities could include:

  • An annual review of the BIA, strategies and overall process for Business Continuity Planning
  • A quarterly review of DR, BC and IMT plans
  • A six monthly call cascade exercise with a post exercise review to determine the effectiveness of the plans.

All of these can be reported on with highlight reports to the senior management to show effectiveness of the maintenance processes.
