The latest business continuity news from around the world

Theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2019 announced

This year’s Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) will run from May 13th – 17th and will focus on the theme of ‘Investing in Resilience’, says the Business Continuity Institute.

Under this theme BCAW will explore different interpretations of ‘investing’ says the BCI. “From investing in people and training, to looking ahead and considering how we can invest in the future of resilience, this year’s BCAW activities seek to empower our community through raising awareness of the profession,” states the Institute.

Business Continuity Awareness Week 2019 will provide a webinar programme; a crowd-sourced video about Investing in Resilience; and various case studies linking in with the BCI’s 25th anniversary as well as exploring the BCAW theme. There will also be a social media competition entitled ‘Planting the roots of resilience’, where people can nominate a colleague or business continuity professional ‘who has made great gains in investing in resilience’ by using #RootsOfResilience and @theBCeye for the chance to win prizes.
