COURSE 2: Crisis and Incident Management

The BCI

his two-day course (run over three days as two half days and one full day) is aimed primarily at those who are tasked with managing an incident, whether at a Strategic or Tactical level or those who have to train or exercise others in these roles. It gives practical experience and theoretical guidance for dealing with the variety of incidents that may be faced by an organization..

This course is not an individual leadership development course, instead we shall be looking at how the top management should take the lead, how they fit into an organization's response structure and what tools they require. We will look at how exercising and coaching can improve their response by, on this course, putting yourselves in their shoes and analyzing your own reactions.

The course covers the following topics:

  • What is an incident - how does it affect an organization? What are its characteristics and how do they develop?
  • What distinguishes an effective from an ineffective response? How can we develop a structure that gives us the best chance of success?
  • How do individuals react to incidents and how can we prepare them to react better?
  • What are the responsibilities of the top team? How should the media be handled?
  • What resources and facilities do the team require? What does an incident management plan contain?
  • How do you train and exercise the team? How do you make IM exercises effective and involving?
  • What are the quick wins? How are you going to implement what you have learned?

COURSE 4: Business Impact Analysis (BIA) Training

Success for the BCM project is contingent on gaining a thorough understanding of the organization. This course will take the attendee through the steps required to develop a complete understanding of the business impact analysis process and the critical steps required to thoroughly understand the nature and requirements of the organization. Understanding the business enables the indepth analysis required to properly document the critical timelines and continuity requirements. This will ensure that the BCP team is prepared to adequately address each BCP and DRP phase and will lead to a successful BCPproject.

The class is a strong mix of both lecture and hands on experience. The students will work together to simulate a true BCP project and handle a case study that is designed to meet all types of business and organizational challenges. By the end of the course, each attendee will know that they are prepared to contribute to, and even lead, a BIA project with confidence and experience.
