Although Business Continuity Management (BCM) has not been on the boardroom agenda of many organizations in the Middle East, it has, however, still enjoyed a significant presence in the region. It is fact that Business Continuity is emerging as a very important area both for the government and private sector, which is confirmed by the recent initiative of the UAE Government with the release of the UAE BCM Standard AE/HSC/NCEMA 7000:2011 that is set to drive national resilience by getting more and more organizations to adopt good BCM practice. Witnessing the past trend, it is not that far away when we will see other Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) coming up with their own localized BC standards or regulations.
