CIPS BCM SIG - Testing Alternatives Roundtable

This month's Business Continuity Management SIG roundtable theme is Testing - types and application.
Just as there are many ways to skin a cat, there are many ways to test Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans. Options available include:

  • paper,
  • tabletop,
  • walkthroughs,
  • simulation,
  • surprise,
  • full and
  • partial tests

... and everything in between.

This roundtable is facilitated by Gabe Gewurtz who will share his experiences conducting many types of tests over his career in Business Continuity. Join in and share your  own approaches or listen to what others have done and why. Bring forward you own situation and take the opportunity to ask the pros if your approach will get the results required.
This is a timely topic as this year at the World Conference on Disaster Management held in Toronto in June, the theme is Testing Recovery Capabilities.
