The latest business continuity news from around the world

Databarracks launches business continuity podcast

Disaster recovery service provider Databarracks has launched BCPcast, a business continuity podcast, offering ‘straightforward, jargon-free discussion with people who deal with disasters for a living’.

BCPcast brings together various experts who manage business continuity for some of the largest organizations in the world to show the applied common sense that good business continuity strategies are built upon. The podcast explores the shape of business continuity today, how it has changed during the careers of the interviewees, and the ways in which they expect it to develop over the coming years.

Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks commented: “Our aim is to create something genuinely useful and insightful for members of the business continuity industry but also to help share their experience and knowledge with the wider small and medium sized business community.

“The insights and experiences of our guests will be extremely useful for those who are looking to create a business continuity strategy, but are unsure of where to get started.

“Over the coming weeks, we will delve into the exercises and methodologies that keep organizations like The Economist and BP secure and resilient, and explore just how much continuity planning goes into something like the London 2012 Olympics. With suet pudding anecdotes and a story about a caterpillar in the London Risk Register, I can promise that listeners will have plenty of fascinating stories to take away from each episode.”
