Starting his career at IBM in 1969, when there was no body of knowledge for business continuity and disaster recovery, author Jim Burtles had to invent a number of the methods, practices, and principles still in use today. This comprehensive, advanced how-to guide captures Burtles’ distilled wisdom and experience over a distinguished career as practitioner, consultant, and teacher spanning 30+ years in 22 countries.  It is a gold mine of practical information based on solid principles; an ideal combination of the practice of business continuity — standards, best practices, global perspectives — and the process of business continuity — planning, development, implementation, and maintenance. Burtles covers not only how to do what needs to be done, but why.

The accompanying Tool Kit on CD has 24 planning and analysis tools, including sample plans for evacuation, emergency response, and crisis management; scripts and plot development tools for creating exercises to test and audit plans; analysis tools for fire exposure, service impact, resource requirements, and more.

Author serves on the British standards committee whose standards U.S. DHS is using in developing its Private Sector Preparedness Standards.
