Disaster and Crisis Recovery Plans and Procedures

We feel this topic is valuable for those managing and maintaining the continuity of an organization's critical processes or capabilities.

Create, document and test continuity arrangements for your organization; Perform a risk assessment and Business Impact Assessment (BIA) to identify vulnerabilities; Select and deploy an alternate site for continuity of mission-critical activities; Identify appropriate strategies to recover the infrastructure and processes; Organize and manage recovery teams; Test and maintain an effective recovery plan in a rapidly changing technology environment.

We will also quickly cover:

1. Construction of a Press Release together with language to provide

2. Bullet points to effectively make initial and post investigation statements to the press

3. Best practices on "controlling the message”

4. What employees need to hear when in crisis
