The latest business continuity news from around the world

The BCI has launched a survey which will inform a new report exploring current pandemic planning activities as well as organizational preparations for post-pandemic business operations.

The report, sponsored by Assurance and ClearView, will look at how different organizations globally are dealing with the pandemic, considering three main areas:

  • Preparedness and readiness: The measures organizations have taken/are taking relating to COVID-19,
  • Reliable information gathering: The methods organizations are using to track information relating to their own company,
  • Business life post-pandemic: The steps organizations are taking to ensure their organization can thrive post-pandemic.

Commenting, Jon Ezrine, Chief Executive Officer, ASI, said: “Assurance and ClearView are very pleased to support this important BCI report. The COVID-19 pandemic caught many businesses by surprise, and it is vital that the lessons learned from the initial response to this global crisis are recorded and are available for business continuity, resilience, and risk managers to refer to in the future. Pandemics are not Black Swans - they are recurrent crises which businesses from generation to generation will need to deal with. This BCI report will become part of the profession’s knowledge bank and will help organizations build effective pandemic plans for the future. The report will also provide absolutely critical guidance to help businesses take the strategic and tactical decisions that will enable them to hit the ground running once the impacts of the current pandemic start to reduce.”
