The Business Continuity Institute (BCI)


BCi logoThe Business Continuity Institute (BCI) was founded in 1994 with the aim of promoting a more resilient world and over that time has become the world’s leading Institute for business continuity and resilience professionals with over 8,000 members based in over 100 countries.

 

The BCI achieves its aims by ensuring that those tasked with developing business continuity within their workplace have the right skills and knowledge to perform their role.

One of the primary roles of the BCI is a certifying body and each and every year it trains around 1,300 new business continuity professionals, providing them with the world-renowned CBCI credential upon successful completion of their exam. The BCI stands for excellence in the business continuity profession and its certified grades provide assurance of technical and professional competency.

 

The BCI is also a thought leadership body, conducting industry research and acting as a conduit for knowledge and experience within the industry, facilitating the sharing of best practice in business continuity.

 

The BCI Partnership, through corporate membership, offers organizations the opportunity to work with the BCI to promote best practice in business continuity and to raise their corporate profile in the global business continuity and resilience arena.

The BCI Knowledge Bank contains a wealth of information including the BCI’s Horizon Scan Report which highlights the greatest threats that organizations face along with the Business Case for BCM and the BCM Survival Guide. The Continuity Magazine offers the latest thinking within the industry.
