Leading BCP Expert & CEO of MHA Consulting Speaks on Merits of BCP Metrics

Michael Herrera

Michael Herrera, leading BCP expert and CEO of MHA Consulting, spoke at the August 5th, 2009 meeting of the Arizona Contingency Planners on the merits of using metrics to measure the maturity of you Business Continuity Planning (BCP) program to identify its current capability as well as predict it readiness in the future. “Without metrics, how can you know where you are today and where you need to be tomorrow?, said Michael Herrera MHA President & CEO. Today’s BCP planners have complex programs that must align the business and technology sides of the program, it is critical that the maturity of each component be determined as well as a global readiness level. This is a critical gap in the BCP arena as Board of Directors want to know if the organization is resilient and management has limited resources and dollars to spend. Assessing your maturity permits you to know what your current maturity level and what maturity level must be achieved to meet corporate and client needs”.

Our Current State Assessment (CSA) tool is a great way to measure your current and future readiness levels.
