The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) has declared March 21-25 Business Continuity Week, a global educational event designed to help people understand more about business continuity management, its applications and benefits.
What’s coming up during the week?
BC24: an online incident simulation game for teams of 6 players to test out their crisis management skills and compete with organizations across the world.
New webcasts: A 30+ webcast program that will run throughout the week. View them live and ask questions or watch recordings at your leisure.
New BCAW Forum: a new LinkedIn Forum for newcomers to ask questions of the BC community and for more experienced practitioners to debate the hot topics in the industry.
New research: The BCI and its partners will publish new research through the week. Webinars will provide an opportunity to engage with the authors of the reports.
New guidance: The BCI Partnership will publish new guidance on the link between business interruption insurance and BCM following a 9-month project working with experts from BCM and insurance sector. A webinar will also provide an opportunity to discuss the recommendations.
New roundtables: The BCI is also supporting two roundtables in the run up to BCAW and during BCAW on IT Risk Management (with IBM) and the value that BCM can bring in effectively dealing with cyber threats (with PwC). Reports from these sessions will be made available to BCI members following BCAW.
New papers: Resilience has become a buzz word in many organizations, but what does it mean and how do you know whether you are a resilient organization? A new discussion paper generated by a BCI Partnership Working Group will be published in the BCAW Forum to stimulate debate.
