From the Back Cover:

The Definitive Handbook of Business Continuity Management 2nd Edition

With a pedigree going back almost ten years, The Definitive Handbook of Business Continuity Management can rightly claim to be a classic guide to business risk management and contingency planning, with a style that makes it accessible to all business managers. Some of the original underlying principles remain the same – but much has changed. This is reflected in this radically updated second edition, with exciting and helpful new content from new and innovative contributors, bringing the book right up to the minute.

This book combines over 500 years of experience from leading Business Continuity experts of many countries. It is presented in any easy-to-follow format, explaining in detail the 10 core BC activities incorporated in the common body of knowledge agreed by the Disaster Recovery Institute International and the Business Continuity Institute.

Contributors from America, Asia, Australia, Europe, India and the Middle East provide a truly global perspective, bringing their own insights and approaches to the subject, sharing best practice from the four corners of the world.

We explore and summarize new legislation, guidelines and standards impacting BC planning and management and explain their impact.

The structured format, with many revealing case studies, examples and checklists, provides a clear roadmap, simplifying and de-mystifying business continuity processes for those new to its disciplines and providing a benchmark of current best practice for those more experienced practitioners.

This book makes a massive contribution to the knowledge base of BC and risk management. It is essential reading for all business continuity, risk managers and auditors: none should be without it.
