The BCI BCM Audit Course

BCM Audit Course

Drawing from the Audit Methodology advocated by the ISO 19011:2002(E), this workshop helps address all three phases of a BCM Audit – Pre-Audit, Onsite conduct of the Audit and Post Audit activities. More than 50% of the course duration is spent using hands-on audit activities designed to ensure that by the end of this workshop, participants would have effectively conducted their first real hands-on BCM Audit. Like the BCI Good Practice Guidelines, principles taught in this workshop can be used to audit against any BCM Standard or Framework, including the BS25999, NFPA, ASIS-BCM, SS540, ISO22301 etc.

  • Purpose and Objective of Auditing
