1. State-of-the-art summation of the global body of knowledge for Business Continuity Management (BCM), including current international standards and best practices.
2. Flexible, modular design that allows you to customize a self-study plan: Ten chapters cover fundamental principles and practices; three chapters give greater detail on Information Technology and Emergency Management for those focusing in these areas; and four chapters delve into Risk Modeling for those seeking a foundation in the statistical underpinnings of risk management.
3. Comprehensive training package for professional development classes, including instructor materials: test bank, syllabi, PowerPoint slides, and sample solutions to case studies, discussions, and end-of-chapter questions. Two of the case studies are integrated throughout the text to give managers experience in applying chapter principles to a service company and a manufacturer.
4. Holistic coverage of two interfacing fields: Business Continuity, which tends to deal with consequences, and Risk Management, which tends to be preventative. Both The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) and The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) have endorsed the book.
5. Quick desk reference for your BCM team offering a readable blend of academic principles and practical applications—an effective tool for grounding interdepartmental teams that are learning to develop and maintain BC plans.
