Topic Background
The goal of a business continuity audit is to determine whether a plan is effective and in line with the company's objectives. A business continuity audit process is a critical part of ensuring an entity’s ability to remain in business in a disaster. Knowing what is acceptable vs what should be in a plan are essential. Some companies with auditors who did not really understand business continuity are no longer in business, because the company’s business continuity plan was not sufficient in an actual disaster.

Knowing best practice guidelines for auditing a program is a must. There are so many regulations, standards and requirements to plow through, that many auditors are less than prepared. A business continuity plan audit should define the risks or threats to the success of the plan and test the controls in place to determine whether or not those risks are acceptable. An audit should also quantify the impact of weaknesses of the plan and offer recommendations for business continuity plan improvements.

The nature, complexity and cost of the business continuity program are related to the nature of the business’ dependence on information technology. Business continuity, which in the earlier days meant just taking backups of data on tape and putting it away somewhere, has come a long way—becoming a complex program both in terms of technology and processes.
