Ely, England, September 5, 2008 – In today’s business world it is likely that organisations will face unexpected disruptions and discontinuities. The new BS25999 standard gives public and private sector organizations the fundamental building blocks that will protect them - exactly the re-assurance that your customers, investors and other stakeholders are looking for - particularly in today's shaky economic environment! IT Governance is now offering a two day BS25999 Business Continuity Management Implementation Master Class which provides comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of best-practice Business Continuity Planning.

This two-day London-based BS25999 Masterclass is led by Tony Drewitt MBCI, an experienced BS25999 Business Continuity Practitioner and author of Business Continuity Management: a Manager's Guide to BS25999. Tony is an expert consultant and was responsible for one of the world's first accredited certifications to BS25999.

Previous delegates of BS25999 courses have gone on to help their own organisations implement best practice business continuity management arrangements - and used BS25999 to put themselves in a position to demonstrate compliance with statutory risk management and/or Civil Contingency Act requirements.

The target audience for this course is Directors and Senior Managers with responsibility for planning and managing risk and sustaining ongoing business performance within their organisation – in particular Operations Directors, Risk Managers, IT Managers and Business Continuity Managers.

The Masterclass will cover the key features and content of BS2599, help delegates understand the differences between BS25999-1 (Code of Practice) and BS25999-2 (Specification), and how to use them to best effect and understand how to use the standard to support business continuity planning within their own organisation. It clarifies the terminology: BCM, DR & Operational Risk Management, gives an overview of BS25999 and its value for BCM and helps to develop a BCM strategy and response, as well as dealing with all the certification issues.
