Business continuity (BC), as a key discipline within the resilience framework, must articulate this message. Exercising BC plans, viewed from this strategic lens, is an opportunity to gauge resilience.

On Tuesday 18th March 2014, as part of the Business Continuity Awareness Week activities, we witnessed the first ever BC Flash Blog. This is probably a new term to most readers, it is a virtual Flash Mob – but instead of a dance routine the participants wrote and published their own blog post or article.
