“Many publications provide a wealth of knowledge about what Business Continuity Management is and how it should be done; few offer an explanation of how it can be assessed. Many concentrate on how to develop and maintain a BCM plan; few adopt an holistic approach and address the key issue of how to develop and maintain a BCM capability based on an understanding of the business and its markets.
“This work of Rolf von Roessing is grounded in sound experience and begins to fill the BCM plan/capability gap. It sets out the BCM audit process in a structured and user
friendly way that should be basic reading for all BCM professionals and BCM auditors.
“The work not only provides a general outline of how to conduct different types of audits but also reinforces their application by providing practical examples and advice to
illustrate the step-by-step methodology, including contracts, reports and techniques. The practical application of the methodology enables the professional auditor and BCM practitioner to identify and illustrate the use of good BCM practice whilst demonstrating added value and business resilience.
