WSCS attended the BCI London Forum at the end of a fantastic awareness week. Quality speakers detailing the challenges, lessons learnt, skills deployed and sad reality of the new threats we all face. Additionally, these are resilient people. But even so, they all acknowledge that they need support to do what they do. 
This dovetailed nicely into mental health awareness week. 
Organised by the BCI London Forum and hosted by the London Fire Brigade. 
This morning WSCS attended the first of many awareness raising sessions as part of BCAW 2018. A well attended session to showcase the BCI Manifesto for Organizational Resilience. Within the manifesto (amongst other things) the BCI are championing the approach of joining together all the disciplines that work together to achieve organizational resilience (and yes the use of the "z" was discussed at length!), of which business continuity is one. 
For those of us who have worked in this field for a number of years we know that this already happens. We already work with risk, security (IT and physical), facilities, etc. But the recognition of this and support that the BCI can bring is welcomed!

We all know about the banks. The TSB story is new and old news. What was the part that jumped out for me? “it appears that consumers need to have a back-up plan - for example, by opening up a second bank account”. Presumably with a different bank! Practical advice perhaps but it seems like passing the buck! 
How good is your own resilience program? 
Do you question your 3rd parties on their critical suppliers? 
Do you validate your IT resilience levels (too high or too low)? 
Are you checking that your outsourced partners execute your DR tests? 
Are you in a position to report to management, customers, auditors? 
These do not have to be expensive things to do. Take advice and accept a pragmatic approach to review, resolve and provide assurance.
