Don't miss...













In our often hectic lives, we don’t always have time to read case studies, white papers or watch webinars – you can’t deny they provide valuable material but sometimes we need something a little easier, and certainly quicker, to digest. This is where blogs can be helpful, providing a key message, usually based on personal experience, in just a few paragraphs.

Below are some blogs that business continuity professionals from across the world have written on the subject of testing and exercising business continuity plans.
