Blue Bell, PA - April 2, 2015 | The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) 2015 North America Awards took place on Tuesday, March 24 in Orlando, FL at Disaster Recovery Journal (DRJ) Spring World 2015. At the conference, BCI recognized Strategic BCP® in two categories:

1. "Continuity and Resiliency Provider of the Year" given to Strategic BCP’s business continuity planning and risk management software, known as ResilienceONE®.

BCI selected Strategic BCP’s ResilienceONE based on client feedback. Some excerpts from over a dozen endorsements include: "Now that audits are all turning risk-based, ResilienceONE gives us a central location to view our risks and easily determine our mitigation strategy based on risk categorization…" -- “ResilienceONE is an easy-to-use tool that allows me to bring value to the organization, even outside of continuity…" -- "Utilizing ResilienceONE to declare a simulated disaster; our personnel learn how to monitor and update status, as well as communicate via conference call…" -- "The BIA portion removes the subjectivity commonly found in this practice and has withstood many different exams by all types of regulators…" -- “This is the only software where you can have it all—business continuity, disaster recovery, crisis management and risk assessment…"

2. "Industry Personality of the Year" was presented to Christopher Duffy, who leads Strategic BCP’s advisory and consulting practice, based on a public voting process from his peers within the BC/DR industry.

Christopher was among five entrants to this BCI award category. He designs Disaster Recovery (DR) alternatives and helps clients increase the visibility of their Business Continuity (BC) program. Christopher specializes in BC/DR risk mitigation and has experience in vendor management, software-as-service (SaaS), and data center design. His hands-on leadership helps advance Strategic BCP’s capabilities and ensures the success of his clients as they are developing and implementing robust DR/BCP plans.

"On behalf of the BCI, the USA and Canadian Chapters, and all of our members, I would like to congratulate Strategic BCP on its two 2015 awards—provider of the year and industry personality, says BCI US Chapter President Brian Zwanda (FCBI, MBCP). “The organization as a whole should be proud of this recognition and I’m confident both ResilienceONE and Chris Duffy will represent the North American market well during the global awards process that takes place later in the year."

These awards—based on customer endorsement and objective industry opinion—add to Strategic BCP’s ongoing recognition from BCI and other leading industry organizations, and underscores the efforts and success for their clients in BC/DR planning.
