Business Continuity and Scenario Planning

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

How will you benefit?

A 2-day intensive course on Business Continuity and Scenario Planning with a view to providing Professionals with a firm foundation of the standards of best practice in this critical area. One of the crucial objectives of management is to learn how to deal with the new requirements with regard to Business Continuity Planning. This is the process through which an organization ensures the maintenance or recovery of operations, including services to customers, when faced with disruptive events such as natural disasters, technological failures, human error or terrorism.

The course includes 3 detailed business continuity case studies and an interactive section on developing effective scenarios. Business continuity is an ongoing priority for financial industry participants. Acts of terrorism over the past decade in New York, London, Istanbul, Madrid and elsewhere, outbreaks of the Corona Virus, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), the Avian Flu and the 2014 developing West African Ebola crisis, as well as various widespread natural disasters such as the 2011 Japanese Earthquake, Tsunami & Nuclear Power Plant Failure, the 2004 Asian Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, have served to heighten that priority by underlining the substantial risk of major operational disruptions to the financial system.

Pre-course questionnaire:

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
