The Senior Management Team leads the incident strategically. They do not carry out recovery tasks, but are more concerned with strategic decisions such as longer term planning for normal business resumption from the incident, liaising with the stakeholders and giving media interviews.
Many members of the Business Continuity Steering Committee are also automatically members of this team which is in charge of strategic decisions following an incident, i.e. the ICT, the Information Security and the Communication and Media members. Other members such as HR, Facilities and other interested business area managers are called upon as necessary, depending on the incident.
