The Ultimate Business Continuity Success Guide
Marty Fox, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017

Organisations continue to face a growing number of natural and man-made disruptions, in an environment where an incident can quickly escalate into a crisis.
Tackling this issue, The Ultimate Business Continuity Success Guide demonstrates how cutting-edge preparation techniques and tools can “make your business unbreakable while increasing revenue and reducing your expenses”.

Author Marty Fox wrote this book with the goal of helping readers improve business resilience and continuity in their organisation, and is the culmination of many years of experience in the field within Fortune 100 companies, mid-tier companies, plus two of his own. Fox and his teammates have successfully led major organisations through disruptive events including hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, blizzards, pandemics, power outages and cyber events. The author is also an expert in leveraging technology to improve business resilience and process efficiency.

With this book, Fox goes beyond advice on what to do, to focus on helping readers with how to do it; and it’s packed with information and insights on a wide range of topics from across the author’s expansive career.

Written for business resilience, business continuity, emergency management, and cyber and physical security professionals alike, readers will benefit from its advice in building a ‘bend but do not break’ culture.

“Businesses often think planning for a crisis is an unnecessary expense,” Fox says. “My experience proves the opposite. Companies that do not plan are gambling on their future and often leave significant ‘money on the table’. I have developed techniques to flip the crucial planning equation from an expense to a profit centre. The book features 1,001 proven tips, techniques and tools you can use to build resilience and discover hidden growth opportunities.”
