BS25999 - Parts 1 & 2 What they mean to you and your business ... a practical guide

Business Continuity has long been a requirement for all businesses, but now, through the new British Standard, it is possible to prove the value of the planning you have undertaken and demonstrate that your organisation complies with recognised Industry Best Practice.

The New British Standard for Business Continuity BS25999 is fast becoming a vital business requirement for many organisations needing to develop their resilience or meet the needs of clients demanding evidence of Business Continuity Management. Organisations should be acting now to assess their current plans against the BS25999 Standard ensuring your BCM process meets the needs of our market and the many varied aspects of Regulation, Legislation and Compliance. The advice and guidance delivered through this event will enable you to develop and fortify your existing plans, or enable a swift and effective start of the process.
