BS 25999 Workshop

BSI's BS 25999 Workshop



BS 25999 Users' workshop
6 October 2010, Edinburgh

BS 25999 has taken the world by storm (not forgetting the disruptions caused by fires, floods and IT breakdowns). It is the fastest selling British Standard of all time and it is likely that you have a copy close to hand right now! 

Recognizing the contribution that BS 25999 is making to the development of more effective business continuity programmes, not just in the UK but worldwide, the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the UK Civil Contingencies Secretariat (CCS) have jointly organized a BS 25999 workshop.

On Wednesday 6th October the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the Civil Contingencies Secretariat of the UK Cabinet Office (CCS) are jointly bringing the third in a series of BS25999 Users’ Workshops to Edinburgh. As a result of a grant from the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) and with the generous support of the Scottish Government and The City of Edinburgh Council, attendance at the BS25999 Users’ Workshop is free.

The workshop will provide organizations that have chosen to develop a business continuity programme, regardless of size or sector, with the opportunity to meet with fellow practitioners and to learn more about the value of BS 25999 and why it is being deployed by an increasing number of smaller businesses.

  • Enjoy an opportunity to network with fellow BCM practitioners
  • Learn about the future direction of BCM standards including an update on current work taking place internationally
  • Take part in a forum to provide input and feedback on a range of issues.

We anticipate significant interest in this workshop and we are hoping to attract the widest possible cross-section of BCM practioners with an interest in BS 25999 (by sector, geographically and by level of experience). 

Please complete a short registration form and email to lucy.mcdonnell@thebci.org.  Please include a brief paragraph (no more than 20 words please) to describe your level of experience with BS 25999 and the key issue that you would like to explore.

Please note that we will advise acceptances at the beginning of September.

The opinions expressed by the speakers and facilitators are made in good faith but delegates should recognize that responsibility for the consequences of any actions taken as a result of such advice, sought or given during this Workshop, remain with the delegate and the organization that they represent.

6 October 2010, Edinburgh

The BS 25999 Workshop will be of interest to all those that are engaged in developing a BCM programme and that have a particular interest in BS 25999, especially those representing smaller organisations for whom such detailed information is not always readily available, including:

  • BC (business continuity) professionals
  • Risk managers
  • IT directors
  • Senior directors of SMEs
  • Disaster recovery managers
  • Crisis/Incident response managers
  • Emergency planning officers
  • Health and Safety managers
  • Facilities and operations managers
  • Quality managers
  • Compliance officers
  • Corporate governance managers.

Some people will be at the start of the BC journey; others will be en-route to compliance; and others will already have passed the certification milestone. Of course, there is no final destination – continuous improvement is the name of the game – but sharing the lessons learned may save some expensive detours along the way!
