ContinuitySA supports Business Continuity Awareness Week 2018

ContinuitySA will, as usual, be supporting the annual Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) this year. BCAW 2018 is a global event facilitated by the Business Continuity Institute to raise awareness of the latest trends in business continuity, and the value effective business continuity can bring to organisations of all types and sizes.

BCAW 2018 takes place between 14 to 18 May 2018.

"Business continuity is becoming more and more important to organisations as the risk landscape becomes more complex and threatening each month," says Cindy Bodenstein, Marketing Manager at ContinuitySA. "By building more resilient organisations, business continuity practitioners can increase their ability to respond effectively to disasters of any kind, and resume trading with the least possible disruption."

The theme of this year's BCAW 2018 is Working together to improve organisational resilience. Webinars will cover a wide range of issues including crisis leadership, building resilient cities, cyber resiliency, supplier dependency, the operational and organisational resilience, maximising employee engagement in resilience, the future of organisational resiliency, and many others. The BCI will also use BCAW to launch the Organisational Resilience Manifesto.

As part of its contribution to BCAW, two consultants from ContinuitySA will deliver webinars.

On 15 May, Karen Humphris, Senior Manager, Advisory Services at ContinuitySA, will explore "Operational resilience as part of organisational resilience". Her focus will be on how go beyond crisis response to building the ability of people, processes and information systems to adapt to disruptive events. To register please click on the link
