|GPG 2013 has now been launched
The latest edition of the Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) was officially launched today. To mark the occasion, Lyndon Bird FBCI and Deborah Higgins MBCI, the editor-in-chief and assistant editor respectively, delivered an insightful webinar that highlighted the key changes to the GPG 2013 and talked attendees through the BCM Lifecycle
The BCM Lifecycle has been amended to better reflect the fact that the objective of the Lifecycle is to embed Business Continuity into an organization and it is Policy and Programme Management that drive this process. The GPG 2013 makes a key differentiation between Business Continuity as a discipline that leads to organizational resilience and Business Continuity Management as a process, which is the sum of the activiites that make up good BC practice.

The BCAW 2013 tweet-a-thon kicked off with great success
One of the goals we set for this year’s BCAW was to make Business Continuity a real global trend through the initiation of a Tweet-a-Thon that hit the web today with incredible vigour and passion. Although we didn’t quite make it as a trending topic, it was an awe-inspiring moment as tweeters from all around the world came together to get the important BC message out. Thank you to all of you who were hitting those buttons and tweeting and retweeting until the sun went down! It was great to see how many of you feel the same way as we do about BC!
Keep the fire burning!
