The latest business continuity news from around the world

Project underway to help Hawai'i-based organizations develop business continuity plans

The University of Hawai'i  has announced that its Associate Professor Jason Levy is leading a two-year project to promote business resilience and public-private sector partnerships in Hawai'i. The project is being funded by a $1.6 million grant from the US Economic Development Administration. Levy will be working with Ross Prizzia, professor of public administration and director of disaster preparedness and emergency management programs at University of Hawai'i  West Oʻahu, to' develop timely and valuable solutions for business continuity planning and disaster management'.

The project involves the planning and development of a business recovery center in Hawai'i.

“The state of Hawai'i has urgent needs for both pre-disaster business continuity planning and post-disaster recovery actions due to its location, topography and demographics. As the most isolated population center in the world, transportation travel times and import costs to Hawai'i are significant. As well, Hawai'i is exposed to a wide range of natural, health-related and intentional threats; from hurricanes and tsunamis to active volcanoes and emerging infectious diseases,” Levy said.
