BCAW News, New Releases, Updates
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!

New CMI Research Report: Weathering the storm was released

The 2013 Business Continuity Management Survey from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) sponsored by the BCI and the BSI was released yesterday.

This year’s report focuses on the disruptive impact extreme weather can have on British businesses and begins to put a figure on the cost of such disruptions with a concerning proportion of businesses suffering costs of more than £10,000.  A clear message of this report is that effective Business Continuity planning improved the resilience of businesses that were subject to extreme weather and that having robust plans in place enabled them to recover more quickly, contributing to the improved resilience of their company.
