Latest 2012 DRI Professional Practices released and available for download now !

The Ten Professional Practices have been updated to reflect current issues and challenges in the Business Continuity Management world.. Significant changes have been made to all the practices with a special emphasis on organizational resiliency, emergency response and operations and business continuity and resumption.

DRI International selected a group of subject matter experts with valuable knowledge in fields of business continuity, emergency preparedness and enterprise risk to conduct an in-depth evaluation of each of the Professional Practices over a significant time period. The goal was to update the documents and set strategy for them to continue to be the primary standard and reference for our professional membership. We believe the team has delivered documents which are technically current, remain generic to all sectors, tie accurately to support of business processes and will be of business value to those utilizing them.

We encourage all DRI International members to utilize these documents to assist them in building, maintaining and auditing their program. They have proven history as a knowledge base which continues to show business value and makes a very positive impact on not only your programs but those of your critical partners.

Comments and recommendations from certified professionals are always welcome to help us continue to improve this body of knowledge and mature the Business Continuity Management industry. The practices will be placed on a regular review cycle and comments and feedback will be used to enhance the practices and maintain currency within the industry.
