GTAG: Business Continuity Management

Global Technology Audit Guides The IIA Feb 15, 2010

This GTAG focuses on how business continuity management (BCM) is designed to enable business leaders to manage the level of risk the organization could encounter in the case of a natural or man-made disruptive event that affects the extended operability of the organization.

Although most executives are likely to agree that BCM is a good idea, many will struggle to find the budget necessary to fund the program as well as an executive sponsor that has the time to ensure its success. Business Continuity Management will help the CAE communicate business continuity risk awareness and support management in its development and maintenance of a BCM program.

The guide includes:

  • Disaster recovery planning for continuity of critical information technology infrastructure.
  • Business application systems.
