New online assessment tool will help firms measure the adequacy of business continuity plans

A new online assessment tool, developed by BSI British Standards, and sponsored by Marsh, will allow organisations to determine the adequacy of existing plans and develop confidence in their Business Continuity Management strategies.

Mike Low, Director of BSI British Standards, said, “The business continuity assessment tool will help organisations understand how to prepare a business continuity plan in a simple yet effective framework and will give added value to their business by enabling them to demonstrate improved risk management.”

The tool is aimed both at SMEs and listed companies looking for a cost-effective means of preparing a Business Continuity plan and understanding the capability of companies in their supply chain.
