CONTINGENCY PLANNING FOR ENTERPRISE CRITICAL BUSINESS PROCESSES - CP-9
New Practitioners' Manual
TRADITIONAL IT CONTINGENCY PLANNING IS INADEQUATE
Organizations have become proficient at developing contingency planning and recovery plans to protect primarily the information systems that are important to protect modern computer system-dependent companies. The emphasis has been on protection against the very conventional threats of fire, flooding, short power outages and computer equipment failure.
The Year 2000 and the SEC regulation has opened the eyes of management and IT managers to the fact that the existing plans are not adequate to protect the continuity of the "most critical or core business processes" that are truly responsible for the very survival of the organization.
We have come to the realization that an IT-oriented contingency plan no matter how well conceived, documented and tested cannot respond to the need to protect the very business, as it is insular and intended to only indirectly protect the business It merely protects IT operation continuity. Besides, the IT contingency plan cannot jurisdictionally, encompass the very minute details of how to actually continue to take orders and deliver products or continue to provide customer services to clients who are truly the key for the financial health and the very viability of the company.
THE NEED FOR CRITICAL BUSINESS PROCESS-ORIENTED CONTINGENCY AND CONTINUITY PLANS
Modern organizations need to develop "enterprise, critical business process-oriented" contingency plans to protect the business activities of the organization and involve the line personnel who operate the critical business processes. Under this key concept, the IT contingency plan is but a component or sub-element of the whole aggregate "enterprise and business contingency and continuity plan".
This unique manual provides you with the principles and practices of "how" to develop enterprise, business process-oriented contingency and continuity plans. The methodologies and practices included are based on our extensive consulting and training efforts by CONTINGENCY PLANNING & RECOVERY INSTITUTE consultants assisting top companies develop contingency plans that respond to the needs of modern organizations with complex critical business processes.
