Friday, 01 April 2011 11:16

EPS Director Alan Elwood, recently took to the airwaves to promote Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) which took place from March 21st to 25th. BCAW is the global educational event in the industry calendar and is facilitated by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), the prestigious international membership body for BCM practitioners with over 5,000 members in 90 countries.

The BCI Northern Ireland Forum held an event on 23rd March hosted by BBCNI, at its Blackstaff Studios and Alan, in his capacity as Chairman of the local BCI Forum was interviewed by Tara Mills on BBC Radio Ulster's Good Morning Ulster programme. The event included a talk on delivering operational resilience, one of the week's key themes and guest speakers were Caroline Gover, Head of BBC Business Continuity, and Lorraine King from the British Standards Institute (BSI). As Head of Business Continuity, Caroline heads up a small team, co-ordinating the corporation's response to emergencies to keep the BBC's key services to the public on air and online. She is responsible for the rehearsal programme for the BBC's Director-General and senior teams in dealing with incidents, and provides the Business Continuity sign-off authority for all the BBC's new investments, ensuring Business Continuity is embedded in all new initiatives.

The event provided an excellent opportunity to hear about continuity management in the world's leading broadcast organisation and learn about certification issues from the leading accreditation body in the UK and was topped off by an interesting tour behind the scenes at the BBC.
