RIMS Workshop

Business Continuity Management: Promote and Protect Enterprise Value


When disaster strikes, a business continuity plan (BCP) will minimize the impact of business interruption. In the short-term, having a customized business continuity plan in place will help guide your organization to effectively respond to a crisis and maintain operations. Over time, these plans can also form a cornerstone in building a more resilient enterprise.


Risk professionals have a critical role to play in making sure the business stays in business. In this course, an experienced instructor will help you learn how to create a plan tailored to your organization, communicate its merits to stakeholders and monitor its effectiveness in practice. 




Workshop participants will learn to:


  • Evaluate the various types of business continuity strategies and identify the most relevant for your organization
  • Understand and document roles and responsibilities to ensure the success of your organization’s BCP
  • Conduct a business impact analysis, and how best to utilize the results when creating a BCP
  • Maintain your program with effective testing and exercises
  • Understand the role BCP plays in building enterprise resiliency




  • Practice with case studies and interactive exercises
  • Sample worksheets and templates




  • Vice presidents, directors and managers of risk management
  • Any stakeholder with an interest or responsibility in protecting the organization from the effects of disruptive events.
