Re. the business continuity plan
- If the organisational structure has changed, does the business continuity structure still fit or does it need re-designing?
- If there have been changes to the business model, or to the key products and services, or to the activities that underpin them, does our previous view of what was most critical still hold true or do we need to revise our assessment?
- Are the underlying business continuity strategies and the solutions that support them still applicable or should we re-visit them?
- Are the recovery time and recovery point objectives on which those strategies and solutions were based still valid or do they need to be re-assessed?
- If key people move (either within, into or out of the business), do business continuity roles and responsibilities need to be re-evaluated or re-assigned, and are the people that they’re re-assigned to up to the job?
- Do our training or awareness requirements need to be re-evaluated as a result?
- Have our risks changed and are there, as a result, any holes in our mitigation measures that need to be repaired or reinforced?
