Business Continuity Awards

You can nominate yourself, your team or someone with Higher Education BC who you think deserves the recognition into any of the three business continuity categories:

  • Incident Response
  • Innovation and/ or Breakthrough
  • Contribution to sector and/or wider community

Incident Response:

  • We invite you to share information on incidents which your institution has had to respond to this year; all welcome, major and smaller scale incidents
  • Looking for outline of incident, what the response entailed and lessons learned from the incident
  • The incident response doesn’t have to be perfect; we are interested in both good examples of incident management and also examples where improvements were identified and implemented. What plans were in place? What plans were developed as a result of the incident?

Innovation and/ or Breakthrough:

  • Have you had any ‘aha’ moments this year? For example, a new way of engaging colleagues on business continuity planning, new technology that you have developed/implemented or any other significant achievements?
  • Share your best practice and where you think you’ve gone above and beyond in relation to delivering business continuity management at your organisation
  • Looking for summary of achievement, what it entailed, and what outcome was. Examples of good practice and new approaches to business continuity management welcome.

Contribution to Sector and/ or Wider Community:

  • Have you supported organisations outside your own with anything relating to business continuity? For example, working with your local council, resilience partnership etc.
  • Did you have an idea for a HEBCoN webinar or regional meeting theme?
  • Are you part of another network where you have made contributions that link to business continuity management?
  • We are keen to hear about what you have done outside your organisation
