With a pedigree going back over 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 third edition, with exciting and helpful new content from new and innovative contributors and new case studies 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 an easy-to-follow format, explaining in detail the core BC activities incorporated in BS 25999, Business Continuity Guidelines, BS 25777 IT Disaster Recovery and other standards and in the body of knowledge common to the key business continuity institutes.

Contributors from America, Asia Pacific, Europe, China, 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 the latest 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.

From the Inside Flap:

"A disciplined work that provides a top-down management perspective on the continuity risk discipline coupled with a bottom-up operational perspective rooted in ‘how to.' Not only is this work valuable to the full spectrum of risk associate from novice to seasoned practitioner; but it was developed as a best-practice anthology authored by the industry's leading professionals; the culmination of writings by well-known names who serve as specialists in a variety of operational risk disciplines. This new edition, ripe with new learning and practices, reaffirms the publication as the cornerstone of the Business Continuity practice."
Mark Carroll, Boston University

"For more than a decade The Definitive Guide to Business Continuity Management has helped shaped the thinking and development of BCM around the world and it is the standard text found on most professionals bookshelves. Whether you read it cover to cover or dip in to the structured advice or read extensive case studies to refresh your thinking, you'll find the guidance clear and informative. This third edition brings the 'Guide' bang up to date, reaffirming it as the best publication available describing, simplifying and enabling effective Business Continuity Management."
Russell Prices, Chairman, Continuity Forum

"The Definitive Guide to Business Continuity Management has long been known as possibly the most comprehensive tome on BCM. This third edition contains innumerable valuable and topical tidbits of information covering various perspectives from a range of highly repsected and competent BCM practitioners. A must read for any serious BCM professional."
Dhiraj Lal, Continuity and Resilience.
