BBC Friday 15 July 2016 – BC@BBC Hands-on Incident Planning Workshop

BC@BBC — Join us this BBC FRIDAY for a Business Continuity / Incident Planning Workshop


Typical Workplace Incident In Need Of Planning …

BC (or as we learned last week, Business Continuity) can be defined as the uninterrupted availability of all key resources supporting essential business functions. Business continuity management (BCM) provides for the availability of processes and resources following a disruption of the business in order to ensure the continued achievement of mission critical objectives.” (Business Continuity Management: Global Best Practices, 4th Ed, Andrew Hiles, 2014)

Incident Planning starts with objectives, which are the goals, then the strategies which are the basics of “how” to meet the objectives, and then the tactics which are the “who, what, when, and where” specifics. O.S.T. — objectives, strategies, tactics. Kinda like BBC’s fair triumvirate “free, fun, friendly.” Or that fair triumvirate of Italian cuisine, “Chianti vineyards, wheat fields, olive groves.”
