Disaster Plan Development

Course Overview:
Ensuring the continuation of critical business operations in the event of an unforeseeable disaster is a chief responsibility of an organization's management team, including its chief financial officer. Many companies believe that because they are small that they are at less risk and are unable to afford the protection that larger companies can afford; however, it is the smaller companies that are at the greatest risk because they are more likely to have all their eggs in one basket. This course will introduce you to the process of developing, communicating and testing a disaster recovery plan to avoid this potential pitfall and ensure the continuation of critical business operations in the case of an unforeseeable event.

After completing this course, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of having a corporate disaster plan in place within your organization
  • Identify the basics of how to develop, communicate and test a disaster plan
