Business Continuity Awareness Week 2020

Posted by LRF Manager Pinned

Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) is running from Monday 18 May through to Friday 22.

COVID 19 is having a huge impact and this year there are Webinars that may help businesses during this difficult time.

The theme is “We are Stronger Together” and focuses on the idea of collaboration across teams, departments and disciplines to build and implement resilience within organizations and society in general. There are free resources and each day there are Webinars for SMEs and large organisations. This is an annual event run by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) to raise awareness of the benefits of forward planning to protect your business and staff.

For more information and to download posters to display, please go to the BCIs’ website BCAW 2020 page
