Our Story

A group of Certified Business Continuity Professionals (CBCP) recognized a need to promote the concept of Business Continuity Management as a tool for developing business resilience.

In October 2016, a decision was eventually taken to partner with Canada-based Disaster Recovery Information Exchange (DRIE), a non-profit association of professionals dedicated to the exchange of information on all aspects of business continuity management, from emergency response to the resumption of business as normal.  The result was the birth of Business Continuity Management Information Exchange Caribbean (BCMIE Caribbean), an independent and autonomous Chapter of DRIE Canada.

As a Chapter, BCMIE Caribbean now has the international reach that was hitherto unavailable. More importantly, we also have access to the resources of DRIE Canada and all its chapters as we pursue our Vision and Mission.
