From 23-27 March, we welcome Business Continuity Awareness Week
for 2009. This is a global initiative sponsored by The BCI and see's professionals around the world raising awareness of business continuity to escalate its significance as as a critical management tool. See below for more details and a link to the global BCAW website.
Late in February we saw Standards Australia release the first "draft for comment" of the Australian Business Continuity Standard
- once released this will become AS/5050.
Unfortunately, due to feedback on errors and omissions, the downloadable copy of the draft was removed from the Standards website, but should soon be available again for preview and comment.
Several new continuity-related conferences and summits
have also been announced over the last few weeks; we hope to see you at some of them.
Finally, Continuity Forum in conjunction with The BCI have just released their BC 2009 benchmarking survey
- participants will receive a copy of the final report so we urge you to take a few minutes to complete this and gain an awareness of how you rank against your industry peers, locally and internationally.
I hope you enjoy this edition.
