Business Continuity Management Policy
The Alberta Shipmanagement Top Management approves the development and documentation of analytical procedures and the creation of the necessary infrastructure to ensure the continuity of business operations through an organized and integrated Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) in the event of a downtime of Alberta Shipmanagement Information Systems and business processes.
The Alberta Shipmanagement Top Management provides the necessary resources for the development, implementation and maintenance of the BCMS. The BCMS covers all necessary and critical operations of Alberta Shipmanagement.
Alberta Shipmanagement maintains a Business Continuity Strategy in order to ensure that its services both to its external and internal customers are offered uninterruptedly.
For the proper design, implementation and maintenance of the BCMS, the Alberta Shipmanagement Top Management is committed to conduct Business Impact Analysis and Risk Analysis with the aim of identifying and analyzing the processes/services, assets/subsystems of Information Systems, their criticality, and the assessment of the consequences (e.g. operational impacts) of any business process downtime.
The BCMS must be periodically tested in a simulation environment to ensure that it can be implemented in case of emergency and that management and all Alberta Shipmanagement employees will understand how to implement it.
Appropriate processes are in place for monitoring and compliance with the applicable legislative and regulatory requirements.
Business Continuity objectives are established, monitored, communicated, reviewed and updated as appropriate in order to ensure BCMS effectiveness and its continuous improvement.
All personnel will be aware of the BCMS and their respective duties on it.
The BCMS must be reviewed and renewed to take account of changing circumstances.
