On July 11, 2018, Richard Long presented this webinar on how to use mock exercises to test the true capability of your BC/DR program.

In this webinar we discussed using mock exercises to:

  • Validate your recovery strategy.
  • Validate your recovery processes.
  • Identify gaps in both your recovery processes and strategy to allow you to correct them before a real event occurs.
  • Train your staff so people know what to do. Actions performed during a recovery are different than day to day activities. We need to practice.
