The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Australasian Chapter is pleased to have the opportunity to be involved with the Emergency 2.0 Wiki initiative and lead the content development, management and promotion of the Business Continuity (BC) Section.
The BCI is the world’s most eminent Business Continuity Management (BCM) institute and its name is instantly recognised as standing for good practice and professionalism. The aim of the BCI is to promote the art and science of Business Continuity Management worldwide. The BCI currently has over 6000 members in 100 countries.
The Wiki will be a key resource for the BCI community and will assist members to stay at the cutting edge of emergency communications technology. For example, as new tools and applications are developed and released eg Google Plus, they will be posted on the Wiki and the BCI, in collaboration with the global Emergency 2.0 Wiki community, will develop practical guidelines on how to use these tools in the business continuity context.
While the 2.0 Wiki has a focus on emergency communications, it will also compliment the BC Online Forum (BCOF), a BCI Australasian Chapter initiative. The BCOF website is currently under development as a pilot project with the aim of providing a forum to facilitate information exchange between BC practitioners and stakeholders on issues, incidents and events occurring in the region.
I strongly encourage all members of the BCI and the broader BC community to play an active role in supporting this valuable global initiative.
