How do you measure the effectiveness of your program? How do you know that what you’re doing is really working and that your organization (and those upon whom you are dependent) is truly prepared?
It’s a beautiful thing when your management understands immediately where your continuity risks are and what needs to be done about them. Getting to that point requires a little science and a lot of art. Metrics and reporting are the communication instruments of a sound BCP program. Often regarded as a simple technical exercise in gathering data, they can make or break your program’s effectiveness in leading the firm to sound continuity capabilities.
How do you ensure your organization is addressing its most critical continuity exposures? How do you know if you’ve reached your goal of resilience? If you’re challenged with implementing a business continuity program across a global organizatio...

When I was asked at a recent business continuity conference whether I was enjoying the program, I answered something like “The speakers are all very knowledgeable, but I’m not hearing any new ideas.” The person with whom I was speaking shared something with me that I took to heart.

Organizations have become increasingly aware of the strategic importance of business continuity, security, and the management of operational risk. The term resiliency is being applied to a variety of efforts to improve capabilities to adaptively respond to disruptive events, be they disasters, cyber-attacks, or human error. Building a resilient organization requires a few basics: a clear definition of resilience, a way to measure capabilities, and a roadmap to provide direction for improvement. To that end, the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) and Carnegie Mellon CERT, have developed a resiliency management approach and the supporting Resiliency Engineering Framework (REF).
Ask Rudy Garcia about his business continuity program and there are a few key phrases that you're going to hear quite a bit: crystal clear, business drivers, strategic planning, communication, useful information, day-to-day basis. Those phrases pretty well sum up Garcia's approach to BCP: Have a crystal clear understanding of the organization's business drivers. Develop a strategic business continuity program that is aligned with the business. Communicate that program to all relevant parties. Provide stakeholders, particularly top management, with useful information that will help them make business decisions. And add value to the organization on a day-to-day basis.
