Product description


The interest in Business Continuity has gained significant momentum in the last few years, especially with the Y2K non-event, the increasing corporate dependence on computer systems and the growing levels of devastation associated with recent disasters. This book takes an organization interested in continuity planning through the processes needed to develop an effective plan. "Jim Barnes has succeeded in providing us a much-needed tool, with which we can condidently face many of the day-to-day challenges of business contingency planning ...With this book, he has taken an important step in removing much of the guesswork and frustration from the business continuity implementation project." From the Foreword by Philip Jan Rothstein, FBCI, President of Rothstein Associates Inc., Publisher of The Rothstein Catalog on Disaster Recovery, 2001

From the Inside Flap

The need for business continuity planning has been highlighted recently by the continuing rapid increase in the dependency of business on technology and the series of headline–grabbing, thought–provoking disasters witnessed in recent years, caused by and including power failures, fuel shortages, storms and floods.

As these disasters occupy prominent coverage by the news media, the senior management of virtually every company and governmental entity needs to consider and plan for the prospect of a disaster interrupting their operations.
Yet the cause of the disaster condition is more often a localized occurrence which can have a deceptively great impact on a company or organization. It is these more common occurrences which happen to an individual company rather than an entire area, that activate companies to plan beyond the point of "what if" to a more proactive "how can we prepare for this type of thing happening again" approach.

This practical and highly topical book:
∗ provides the "how–to" of planning and implementing recovery policies in case of disaster or emergency
∗ is an invaluable "toolkit" for CEOs, and managers who find themselves in the role of internal consultant on corporate business continuity planning
∗ offers the same kind of guidance as an external specialist
∗ will also be a valuable source of reference for business consultants in the field
