Business Continuity Auditing Plans Using ISO 22301

This seminar will cover the best practices for implementing and auditing a Business Continuity Plan. The speaker will discuss the lifecycle of a BCP program with specific emphasis on Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis, Designing a living BCP & Testing & Maintenance. The program will also detail the various standards from FFIEC to ISO.

Participants will understand what’s involved in a full BCP program and have insights based upon field experience that can be applied to Internal Audit work and BCP. The session will provide you with tools that you can bring back to your company to improve upon BCP programs & ability to audit them to provide targeted recommendations.

Areas Covered:

Successful business continuity planning involves the entire organization. It requires clear and consistent communication and encompasses how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. An effective BCP prepares the organization for disruptive events.

Why is a BCP Important?

Data suggest that 61% of companies surveyed had to invoke their BCP out of which 43% had to invoke it more than once. The key causes were natural disaster, power outage, IT failure, flood, fire, telecom failure, utility outage, and pandemic.

The critical lessons learned from invocation were:

  • There had not been enough training and awareness efforts across the company:
  • Plans didn’t adequately address emergency communications
  • Key staff had not been included in testing; as a result they did not know their roles and responsibilities in the plans:
  • Cyber attacks

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to Audit the Business Continuity Management System based on ISO 22301, Disaster Recovery Institute, and others
