No More Risky Business

No More Risky Business


What risks does your business face? What events would and could disrupt your business, and how would you survive the interruption and loss of work, product or cash flow?

Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW2013) is a global educational event designed to help business owners understand more about business continuity management (BCM), its applications and benefits.

Taking place from 18 – 22 March 2013, BCI gold partner ContinuitySA will be focusing on a host of free events to showcase the value of business continuity as an integrated part of any organisation’s strategy in South Africa.

Be prepared

This year’s theme, ‘Business Continuity – for the risks you can see and the ones you can’t’ will provide new opportunities for interested parties to engage with experts around the world and learn more about BCM and the ever-growing range of risks that need to be planned for.

The BCI and its partners will be publishing new research and papers throughout the week, and through a series of Webinars you can engage with authors on these reports. The webinars can be viewed live and questions can be asked or watched online at your leisure.
