A Guide to Business Continuity Planning

Author: James C. Barnes

In this book, the author brings together his wisdoms that he collected during the execution of his work as a consultant in the business continuity branch. They are not high-flowing theories, rather a collection of facts that he illustrates very extensively with fairly complete examples, which, after interpretation of their own business and possible adaptation to their own templates, are ready for use.

Specifically, the author gives examples of:

–     a work plan
–     an offer,
–     a policy statement
–     a BIA
–     crisis procedures
–     Other…

In addition, he goes through the development of BCM as through a project. Each phase of the project is a chapter, seasoned with practical examples that provide inspiration for the ‘own work’ of the reader.

That is why the book is interesting for a practical person, regardless of whether he / she is a consultant or has to set up BCM for his or her own organization.
