Be prepared with the time-tested strategies in Business Continuity Management: Building an Effective Incident Management Plan and protect your employees while ensuring your company survives the unimaginable.

No accompanying PDF, Too abstract, Dead links

The book may make you sleep. Not providing clear step by step approach to BCP as per ISO 22301 -- Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA). The accompanying PDF is not available. The link on wiley.com/go/businesscontinuity works but you are asked to login, yet the author stated the password only. It is all time wasting and no value.

The book has good theoretical explanations about BCP terms and the general approach, but lacks on practical insights to start and implement a clear BCP agenda in an organisation.
