Kildow, CBCP, FBCI, Betty
94th Annual International Conference Proceedings - 2009 - Charlotte, NC
This workshop covers best practices to develop a comprehensive business continuity program. To help you better understand your organization’s current level of disaster preparedness, this session includes an interactive assessment. Look for a step-by-step process to get things started, to evaluate an existing program or to better understand where your business unit fits in the big picture of the organization’s business continuity program. To be effective, business continuity planning must include and integrate all business units and extend to its supply chain. An uninterrupted supply chain becomes even more critical following a disaster. The absence of supplies, equipment and services can delay the restoration of business operations, resulting in loss of revenue and a possible loss of customers and clients.
