An Audit is recommended for well developed business continuity management programs and is suitable for presentation to the Corporate Board of Directors or Audit committee. The Audit is based on business continuity management standards such as the CSA Z1600 and DRI International professional practices.
An objective assessment of an existing business continuity or emergency plan by an experienced audit consultant can provide significant insights and potential program savings. In addition, senior management will obtain a clear understanding of the state of emergency preparedness and can make informed decisions regarding future investment.
A program review is an informal report on the current status of a business continuity or emergency management program based on standards and best practices.
The results can be used to create a five year plan focusing on priorities identified in the review.
