The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) has announced that Building Resilience in the Hybrid World will be theme of this year’s Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW). In addition to the new theme, BCAW will include even more resources, webinars, content, and competitions.
In the last 24 months, as the world has seen a rise in the adoption of hybrid work models, where employees have the flexibility to work part in the office and part remotel, this new work environment has compelled organizations to rethink the way they embed, validate, and raise awareness amongst their staff of Business Continuity Plans. Thus the theme Building Resilience in the Hybrid World.
The aim of the theme is to equip organizations and Business Continuity Professionals with the necessary tools to embed & improve awareness of Business Continuity in this new workplace reality.
Here are ways to get involved in BCAW 2022 and share your knowledge, ideas and skills…
As part of this year’s campaign, the BCI will be producing a BCAW Exercise Playbook. The Playbook will contain a wide-range of exercise examples (cyber exercise, a terrorist attack, IT outage, etc.) for the hybrid work model.
The aim of the playbook is to provide organizations/professionals with suggestions and examples that can help and support them in running their exercises and embedding programs. The Playbook will be a downloadable PDF.
Business continuity professionals are encouraged to submit an Exercise Scenario for the BCAW Exercise Playbook and can contribute here.
