This class is a fresh review of best practices and methodology that lends itself to a better understanding of business continuity management, and its presentation provides a sure path in which a complete business continuity program is developed. The class format provided for a sharing of insights and ideas that I found valuable for continued professional growth in this industry. Many thanks.””
