BCM & DR: NAME THE RADIO SHOW!!

As you may know from our last post, our founder Alex Fullick, will be doing an internet radio show on the Talk Radio Network at http://www.voiceamerica.com.

Based on all things Business Continuity Management (BCM) related, such as Disaster Planning, Emergency Management, personal safety (home, privacy…), Crisis Management & Communications, Business Continuity Planning etc. the show hopes to bring the BCM industry awareness to the masses.

But we still need a name!!

Soooo, be creative and provide us a suggested name for the show.

The only guidelines is that is should be short and catchy and easily identifiable to everyone – not just industry practitioners.

We’re looking forward to what you come up with.

 

Regards,

The StoneRoad Team

PS: If the winning suggestion comes from a response provided through this site, we’ll try talk Alex into providing some sort of goodie for ya!

Business Impact Analysis (BIA): Reviews and Timeframes

For the most part, the BCM industry states that reviews of Business Impact Analysis (BIA) findings and results are to be done on an annual basis; however, I propose that this thinking change.  It is difficult of companies of all sizes and industries, to set aside time every year to review BIA’s, let along set time and resources aside to participate in various BCM tests and plans & process reviews.
