B. Business Continuity Committee
C. Remuneration Committee
D. Nomination Committee
Kindly be reminded that the suggested answer is for your reference only. It doesn’t matter whether you have the right or wrong answer. What really matters is your reasoning process and justifications.
My suggested answer is B. Business Continuity Committee.
Wentz’s book, The Effective CISSP: Security and Risk Management, helps CISSP and CISM aspirants build a solid conceptual security model. It is a tutorial for information security and a supplement to the official study guides for the CISSP and CISM exams and an informative reference for security professionals.
The board of directors can establish any committee if they consider it is necessary. Some committees are often required by the laws or regulations, e.g., audit committee. However, most of the board-level committees are voluntary and based on business needs.
Audit Committee, Remuneration Committee (aka compensation committee), and Nomination Committee (governance committee) are common board-level committees, while Business Continuity Committee is not. According to the study, The Structure of Board Committees, hardly a business continuity committee appears at the board level. This link shows the board committees at Microsoft.
