The DRJ Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) Generally Accepted Business Continuity Practices Committee and partner organizations (ARMA, DRII, FSTC and NFPA) are pleased to announce the Generally Accepted Practices (GAP) document is in its final phase.
This final phase is to "fine-tune" the document for Industry Specific GAP documents. Input is needed from practitioners in all industries. Currently, the committee is seeking participation from practitioners in the healthcare industry. To participate, email: email@example.com
The GAP document was created by 10 individual sub-committees of seasoned business continuity professionals from partner organizations (ARMA, DRII, FSTC and NFPA) and members from the public and private sectors.
The mission of the DRJ-EAB effort is: “To be recognized as a leading source of ‘sound’ Generally Accepted Practices by providing a depository of knowledge and recommendations offered by skilled business continuity practitioners.”
