Business continuity management (BCM) planning is fundamental for protecting companies from organizational and reputation risk in case of business interruptions. All company organizations must develop, exercise, test and maintain plans for the resumption and recovery of business functions and processing resources. This compliance questionnaire can be used by auditors to evaluate an organization’s business continuity management process.
Sample questions include: Are all personnel aware of business continuity planning efforts and its level of importance? Does the plan have a clear and current management and mission statement? Have all current internal and external threats and their associated probabilities been identified and updated if needed? Have all of the organization's vital records been identified and updated?
