Reading the Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) has now become even easier as the Business Continuity Institute has just released its latest publication – GPG Lite. GPG Lite is a high level overview of the full guidelines and helps explain the ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘when’ of managing a business continuity management programme. And if that is not tempting enough, it is also free.
The GPG has become an essential document for those working in the business continuity industry and provides the basis for the Certificate of the BCI examination, the qualification required in order to become a full statutory member of the BCI. However, the GPG is not only for those seeking professional certification, it can also be used as an information source for BC training programs and awareness campaigns for colleagues who need to understand the subject better.
Drawing upon the considerable academic, technical and practical experiences of BCI members, the GPG remains the most comprehensive and independent view of current thinking on the business continuity. Unlike a management system standard, it can have the flexibility to identify future trends, challenges and issues that professionals are still debating. As such, it provides an accepted benchmark against which the knowledge of professionals can be examined and which can form the basis of academic training.
