Business Continuity Awareness Week 2023

This years Business Continuity Awareness week takes place from Monday 15th May to Friday 19th May and the theme is Embracing the Challenge of Resilience.

The theme  has been developed due to recent events - from the war in Ukraine, the rise of inflation, the high cost of living, supply chain disruptions, to the energy supply crisis - all of which are pressuring organizations to adopt resilience as the 'norm'. Staying resilient, building resilience, and maintaining resilience are top priorities for organizations worldwide.

This year, BCAW 2023 has been designed to support professionals and organizations in raising awareness and embedding business continuity to build resilience so that they can thrive in the face of adversity.

Each day of Business Continuity Awareness Week will focus on a particular sub-theme, as follows:

  • Monday, 15th May: Cyber Resilience
  • Tuesday, 16th May: Supply Chain Resilience
  • Wednesday, 17th May: Operational Resilience
  • Thursday, 18th May: Personal Resilience
  • Friday, 19th May: Organizational Resilience
