For two (2) days on 11-12 Aug 2009, a course on the implementation of the latest BSI Standard, BS25999 Business Continuity Management System (BCMS), was held at the Federal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. This is arguably the first of its kind ever conducted here in Malaysia.
The BSI’s “Implementing BS 25999” course provides participants with practical tools and methods of implementing business continuity management. This implementation course is based on industry best practice and the Business Continuity Management (BCM) Code of Practice BS 25999-1:2006 & the auditable Specification BS25999-2:2007, which were released by BSI. Practical exercises provide students with the opportunity to gain skills to introduce BCM into an organization. Students will return to their organizations with the knowledge of how to implement a business continuity management system based on BS 25999.
This course is suitable for those interested in the implementation of BS 25999, particularly those involved in developing, operating, and/or maintaining business continuity systems based on BS 25999.· It is also suitable for those professionals interested or involved with introducing BS 25999 into an organization.· Some who have started doing works as Business Continuity Managers, Business Managers or other Professionals involved with other management systems can also fit into the program well.· Or, the participants can simply be those required by their manager/organization to learn about implementation of a BCM.
The program outline of the BS 25999 Implementation covers:
  • Introduction to BCM
    Elements of the BCM LifecycleBusiness Continuity Management Program
  • Roles and Responsibilities required for a BCM program
