In response to a request by readers asking for access to examples of table top exercises testing business continuity plans, our staff recommends the following:

A recent article written by David Geer offers three (3) table top scenarios  addressing; “Chemical Explosion”, “Primary Supplier Cannot Deliver”  and  “Angry IT Guy”

An older article written by Sarah D. Scalet offers three (3) table top scenarios addressing: “Disgruntled Employee Starts a Data Center Fire”, “An Explosion Releases Deadly Toxins” and ” Pandemic Flu Hits”

The American Bar Association (ABA) Committee on Disaster Response and Preparedness offers a free  “Guide to Developing and Conducting Business Continuity Exercises”
