April Workshop – Thursday April 17, 2014

Ensuring the Future of Your Business Through Business Continuity Planning (BCP) 

A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is “planning which identifies the organization’s exposure to internal and external threats and synthesizes hard and soft assets to provide effective prevention and recovery for the organization.”

Recent incidents like the earthquakes, terrorist attacks and other natural disasters have made many companies realize their business world is at risk every day. Customers are demanding that their suppliers maintain the ability to provide products and services in the event of a disaster. Some customers even require that a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) be submitted and maintained by their key suppliers.

Please join the ASQ Boston Section for a workshop where Jim Saropoulos, President of Exolytic Inc, will provide an overview of how organizations can use ISO 27001 to implement an effective Business Continuity Plan.  Jim is a past Chair of the ASQ Boston Section and has extensive work experience in multiple regulated environments.
