The Loma Prieta earthquake in California 25 years ago sparked the modern discipline of Business Continuity Planning ?data centres were up and running within hours or less, thanks to well-developed disaster recovery planning, but buildings and bridges had collapsed and power was out in wide areas. Many businesses took weeks to recover and some never did.
Since then, businesses and government agencies are increasingly moving to fully online models, abandoning outlets, branches, and service counters for cheaper, faster, better digital services.
But is cheaper, faster, better, really possible? In the technology world, engineers and developers will tell you to take two out of three. Heavy reliance on online availability introduces significant risks ?if you’re down, you’re done!
To be online all the time requires significant planning and investment ?to keep your business viable and competitive. For government agencies, the same level of planning and investment is required to maintain service levels.
And if you’re involved with financial services in Singapore, you know what the Monetary Authority requires of you!
Come hear our panel of experienced business continuity planners share their expertise and field your questions to help you be online all the time.
Speaker: Mr. Ong Liong Chuan

Latest 2012 DRI Professional Practices released and available for download now !
The Ten Professional Practices have been updated to reflect current issues and challenges in the Business Continuity Management world.. Significant changes have been made to all the practices with a special emphasis on organizational resiliency, emergency response and operations and business continuity and resumption.
DRI International selected a group of subject matter experts with valuable knowledge in fields of business continuity, emergency preparedness and enterprise risk to conduct an in-depth evaluation of each of the Professional Practices over a significant time period. The goal was to update the documents and set strategy for them to continue to be the primary standard and reference for our professional membership. We believe the team has delivered documents which are technically current, remain generic to all sectors, tie accurately to support of business processes and will be of business value to those utilizing them.
We encourage all DRI International members to utilize these documents to assist them in building, maintaining and auditing their program. They have proven history as a knowledge base which continues to show business value and makes a very positive impact on not only your programs but those of your critical partners.

Comments and recommendations from certified professionals are always welcome to help us continue to improve this body of knowledge and mature the Business Continuity Management industry. The practices will be placed on a regular review cycle and comments and feedback will be used to enhance the practices and maintain currency within the industry.
