The latest business continuity news from around the world

2017 Business Continuity Awareness Week will focus on cyber resilience

The 2017 Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) will take place between the 15th and 19th May and will be based around the theme of cyber resilience.

The theme was chosen following a survey after BCAW 2016 by the Business Continuity Institute. Of all the suggestions made for a theme for BCAW 2017, one-third related to cyber resilience, making it the clear favourite. The survey also asked whether people preferred BCAW being held in May as it was in 2016, whether it was better when it was held in March as per previous years, or whether another month should be chosen. Four-fifths preferred the May date.

The BCI will soon start to publish some helpful resources for organizations and individuals to use to prepare for BCAW 2017.
