Develop Testing Requirements

The first step in creating a sound testing program is to establish a business continuity testing policy. This policy sets the expectations to follow in implementing testing strategies and planning.

Testing Policy

The policy should establish a testing cycle that gradually increases in scope and complexity, allowing for your business to more readily adapt to changes in business conditions over time.

The testing policy should:

  • Incorporate the use of a Business Impact Analysis and a Risk Assessment for developing business-wide continuity testing strategies
  • Identify key roles and responsibilities of employees tasked with business continuity testing
  • Establish minimum requirements for the institution's business continuity testing, including baseline requirements for frequency, scope, and reporting of test results
