The Business Continuity Managers Association of the Philippines (BCMAP) is holding its Second Business Continuity Summit on September 10, 2018 in Manila with the theme Business As Usual. This will be a premiere learning event where around 300 Business Continuity Practitioners, Risk Officers and Emergency Management Practitioners will receive updates on industry standards, trends, best practices and strategies that they can immediately apply in their own organizations.
