IT5 - The Audit Role in Contingency Planning

Business has become increasingly dependent on computers to survive on a day-to-day basis.

If these systems become unavailable for a significant period or if the integrity of the data they process is prejudiced, the very survival of the organisations which depend on them may be at serious risk.

No busy manager likes to spend time contemplating the worst which could befall the company and anyway, disasters happen infrequently and always to someone else.

This two-day seminar puts Computer Disaster Recover Planning firmly in its place as part of the Corporate Survival Program and highlights the auditor's role in ensuring the viability of the corporate Contingency Plan.
