Plan Testing & Exercises

After developing the Business Continuity Plan, you should subject the plan to testing and exercises to determine whether the various parts of the plan will be effective and meet expectations.  

Consider the example of a business continuity planning recovery strategy that requires relocating to another facility and configuring equipment at that facility. A number of considerations are present: Can equipment at the alternate facility be configured in time to meet the planned recovery time objective? Can alarm systems be heard and understood throughout the building to warn all employees to take protective action? To determine whether the various parts of the Business Continuity Plan will work, you should subject the plan to testing.
