BCM Audit

Do you want to know if your organization has a viable Business Continuity Program? Are you unsure about the thoroughness of your Business Continuity Plan? The BCM Program, with all its elements, can be considered complete and workable if it has been reviewed, exercised and audited.

The BCM Audit helps to validate the Business Continuity capability of the organization and plays an important role in ensuring its continued existence.

Purpose of the BCM Audit

The overall goal of the BCM Audit is to identify, evaluate and document things which are critical to the continued existence of an organization as a whole, and provide an objective view on its ability to survive in adverse situations.

The BCM Audit can serve various objectives, for example:

  • Program/capability validation;
  • Project benchmarking;
  • Compliance;
  • Due diligence;
  • Forensic investigation; or
  • Other purposes.

Objectives define the scope of audit, its timeframe, budget and content requirements for the final report. The BCM Audit examines the BCM Program against the industry standards, conducts its evaluation (according to the degree of its maturity), and provides recommendations on further development. Usually the results of the BCM Audit include:

  • Issues of compliance
  • Flaws, gaps and weaknesses in the existing BCM program and capability
  • Recommendations to management.
