Send Word Now is pleased to invite you to attend and participate in our webinar focused on "Essential Tips and Tricks on Selling BCM to the C-Suite."
For years, industry professionals have been searching for ways to win hearts and minds at the C-level to help support BCM programs. Using the findings of BCI’s own research and conclusions drawn from other international studies, Lyndon Bird, Technical Director of the BCI, will discuss how BCM can be pushed up the corporate agenda so that it becomes a core component of strategic planning, risk oversight, and corporate governance.
Join Send Word Now and our featured speaker, Lyndon Bird, Technical Director of the BCI, to learn about:
- Why the C-Suite doesn’t prioritize BCM
- Successful strategies on how to put BCM on the C-Suite's radar
- The new role for BCM in a globalised world
- Managing Supply Chain Risk - ERM and BCM working together
- How you can transform the idea of BCM as a internal response strategy to a business resilience and sustainability model

Rules & Regulations … The Source
By Martin Myers, MBCP
If you’re like I am, I have kept my own list of rules and regulations pertaining to Business Continuity for years.I trade my list with fellow BC professionals for a copy of their prized list.We trade links for good sites where additional regulations may be found.This is a somewhat tedious activity, and certainly not a good way to share with the world of BC planning.Luckily, a fellow member of the DRJ EAB had the idea to start a committee to compile a list of regulations that could be shared through the DRJ to the entire BC world.
We formed a team, shared our lists and on-line resources.Each team member scoured the internet and their own list of BC contacts to glean additional rules and regulations to include in our data base.After a few iterations we realized that our list will never truly be complete, and as long as there are lawmakers and bureaucrats, new laws will be added.We double-checked the list we had compiled, confirmed the links, categorized them as best we could, and we are now ready to release our data base to the BC world.Knowing full-well that our starting list will grow with your help.
The committee worked to categorize our findings in ways that will be helpful.There is a column for country, so the list may be sorted or searched in that manner.Where possible, we also indicated what industry the rule was likely to pertain to.At the bottom of our list we also share other links where a compiled list may be found.
We have cross-checked our list to be sure we have included all the items found elsewhere.We recognize that this list will always be growing as contributions are made, and those contributions are a vital part of the usefulness of tool.
The DRJ Rules & Regulations data base is intended to provide each of us a singular resource where we can go to and find the most complete and comprehensive list or BC-related rules and regulations.This can only be accomplished with you help.If you find a new regulation, send it to us.If you see a way to enhance this lest, let us know. This list is intended to help us all and is intend to be supported by us all as well.
