BS 25999 Workshop

BSI's BS 25999 Workshop

BS 25999 Users' workshop
28 April 2010, Leeds

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.

As a result of a grant from the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) and with the generous assistance of Leeds City Council, attendance at the BS25999 Users’ Workshop is free.

The workshop will provide users of the standard with the means to exchange information and experience and provide feedback on the ways in which BS 25999 might be most beneficially deployed going forward.

You are invited to apply to attend this free informative and interactive workshop in Leeds on 28 April 2010.

  • 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 users of BS 25999 (by sector, geographically and by level of experience). 

Please let us know that you would like to attend and we will advise acceptances by 16 April 2010.

Please complete a short registration form and email to  Please include a brief paragraph (no more than 20 words please) to describe your level of experience with BS 25999.

BS 25999 Users' workshop
28 April 2010, Leeds

The BS 25999 Workshop will be of interest to all those with experience of working with BS 25999, 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

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!
