Business Continuity Tip of the Month   -  September 2020

Education for the masses

The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) has designated September as ‘Education Month’. It’s billed as “the annual campaign that promotes education and training opportunities for business continuity and resilience professionals”. Which is all well and good, but this description is actually slightly unfortunate. Because it implies a fairly narrow field of interest, whereas in reality, the associated resources can not only benefit ‘business continuity and resilience professionals’ but also many other ‘normal’ people, who are involved in some capacity in their organisation’s business continuity management programme.

As part of the initiative, the BCI is providing a variety of educational resources, including webinars, research material, blogs and news articles on a wide range of topics, many of which are applicable not just to business continuity practitioners and consultants but also to people with real jobs! Directors, managers, team leaders, Facilities, HR or IT specialists, to name a few – in fact pretty much anyone involved in developing and maintaining their organisation’s business continuity capability – can benefit from these resources.

So why not check out the  BCI’s Education Month resources at the BCI’s website. For instance, their webinar programme, which includes one or more webinars every day in September. If you can’t make a webinar at the scheduled time, many of them are available on demand, so you can listen at your leisure.

Best of all, most of this stuff is free, so this is a great opportunity, not just for business continuity specialists, but for many others who have any kind of business continuity responsibility, to enhance their awareness of related issues without impacting on budgets. What’s not to like?
