DUBLIN, July 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Added Business Continuity Management & Scenario Planning training Offer.

A 2-day intensive course on Business Continuity and Scenario Planning to provide professionals with a solid foundation in the best practice standards in the critical area of ​​Business Continuity Planning.

One of the most important management goals is to learn how to deal with the new requirements in terms of business continuity planning.

Business continuity planning is the process by which an organization ensures the continuation or restoration of operations, including services to customers, when faced with disruptive events such as natural disasters, technological failures, human error, or terrorism.

The course includes 3 detailed business continuity case studies and an interactive section on developing effective scenarios.

Business continuity is an ongoing priority for participants in the financial industry. Terrorist attacks in the last decade in New York, London, Istanbul, Madrid and elsewhere, outbreaks of the Corona Virus (Covid-19), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Avian Influenza and the 2014 developing West African Ebola crisis, as well various widespread natural disasters such as the 2011 Japan earthquake, the 2004 tsunami and nuclear power failure, the 2004 Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina have helped raise this priority by underscoring the significant risk of major financial system disruptions.
