About the Author:

JAMES C. BARNES, Manager of Deloitte & Touche, has over 13 years of extensive experience in Business Continuity Planning. Most recently, he assisted in the design of a Business Continuity Company Certification course, which he taught in Europe, South America, and the United States. He has written over 300 Business Continuity Plans of which 12 have been successfully exercised, and specializes in the areas of continuity risk management, vulnerability and risk assessment, business continuity planning, BCP policies and standards, strategic planning for financial institutions, and economic forecasting. Mr. Barnes has held several positions in these areas, such as Director of Business Continuity Planning for Citibank, Florida, where seven of his plans were exercised during Hurricane Andrew. He has also conducted numerous seminars on business continuity planning throughout the United States, working with clients such as Johnson and Johnson, the Chicago Stock Exchange, The First American Financial Corporation, MONY, and Conseco.

From the Inside Flap:

The need for business continuity planning has been highlighted recently by the continuing rapid increase in the dependency of business on technology and the series of headline-grabbing, thought-provoking disasters witnessed in recent years, caused by and including power failures, fuel shortages, storms and floods.

As these disasters occupy prominent coverage by the news media, the senior management of virtually every company and governmental entity needs to consider and plan for the prospect of a disaster interrupting their operations.
Yet the cause of the disaster condition is more often a localized occurrence which can have a deceptively great impact on a company or organization. It is these more common occurrences which happen to an individual company rather than an entire area, that activate companies to plan beyond the point of "what if" to a more proactive "how can we prepare for this type of thing happening again" approach.

This practical and highly topical book:
* provides the "how-to" of planning and implementing recovery policies in case of disaster or emergency
* is an invaluable "toolkit" for CEOs, and managers who find themselves in the role of internal consultant on corporate business continuity planning
* offers the same kind of guidance as an external specialist
* will also be a valuable source of reference for business consultants in the field
