  • Michael’s Business Continuity Audio Program, originally developed in 2005 and updated annually, has been and is being used by many organizations to train personnel on the proper way to do Business Continuity.

  • In helping her consulting clients, she has developed innovative ways to help them not only pass their audits, but also to effectively put full Plans in place where there were none. Through her ability to resolve issues, as well as her resourcefulness and innovation in the designing and writing of plans she has helped many companies to be better prepared in less time.
  • Michael conducted Risk Assessments and Impact interviews simultaneously, eliciting strategies during the interviews as well as developing strategies that the clients had not previously considered. This unselfishly cut tremendous billing hours for her clients as well as expedited the planning process to get them to a prepared environment sooner. By writing the plans, with straightforward action steps and well defined teams, the plans were executed efficiently during tests that she designed. ·  For one client, Michael designed and executed creative table top tests with not only the Cyber Incident Response Team (CSIRT) but also had the BCP and DR Teams as well as the business functions involved in the same table top tests. This resulted in the Cyber Incident Response Team (CSIRT), DR Team and BCP Team identifying large “disconnects” that allowed the planners to update the plans before a large test was undertaken.
