Introduction to Business Continuity Training

Cambridge Risk Solutions LogoHEBCoN have been running a number of training days in conjunction with Cambridge Risk Solutions throughout 2015/16

These have been very well received and we have added new dates for 2017.

“Introduction to Business Continuity Management “

Who is the course suitable for?

The course is designed for staff members in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) who have recently taken on business continuity management (BCM) responsibilities as part of their job role and have not yet received any formal training.  It may also be of value to members who need to refresh their knowledge of the basics of BCM; but it is not suitable for people who have significant prior BCM experience and are seeking more advanced training.

Aim and Learning Outcomes

The aim of the course is to prepare newly-appointed BCM staff in HEIs to carry out their role.  On completion of the course you should be able to:

  • Explain the “Elements of BCM” as per ISO 22313; and
  • Assist more experienced practitioners in the development and maintenance of BCM plans.

Course Outline

This is a 1-day course and generally runs from 0930 to 1600.  The course focuses on Clause 8 (Operation) of ISO 22313, which covers:

  • Operational planning and control;
  • Business impact analysis and risk assessment;
  • Business continuity strategy;
  • Establishing and implementing business continuity procedures; and
  • Exercising and testing.

Given its introductory nature, much of the course is delivered in the form of presentations; but there are a number of team-based exercises throughout the day to reinforce learning.

Pre-Course Requirements

This is an introductory course: there are no pre-course requirements.

Benefits to your Institution

On completion of the course delegates will be ready to assist more experienced professionals in routine aspects of BCM.
