Why do we organize this seminar ?

Many private and public organisations have initiated a Business Continuity Management (BCM) project to prepare for an unplanned event that would cause a major disruption of operations. Although many of these projects mitigate part of the risks related to the continuity of their operations, they may fail to ensure that all processes and crisis scenarios that are highly critical for the organisation have been covered. In addition, BCM is very often not embedded into the organisation and is a one-time effort; as a result, Business Continuity Plans are outdated. Furthermore, many BCM projects are not efficient and take more time to complete than originally foreseen.

Questions answered in this seminar

This seminar addresses typical pitfalls in BCM projects and typical shortcomings in traditional BCM approaches. This seminar intends to:

  • Give you a clear picture of what Business Continuity Management is and what the different components are
