Dave Cooke

Risk and Business continuity management SIG chair, IWFM


Our SIG provides a platform for the development and promotion of best practice in a number of key areas applicable to the Workplace and Facilities Management community. These areas are: -

  1. Risk management
  2. All aspects of security
  3. Business continuity, disaster recovery and crisis management
  4. Cyber security

We aim to support those with responsibilities in these areas and help them access the information they need to keep up to date with developments and tackle the challenges they face. We do this by publishing guidance, newsletters, organising events and answering direct enquires.

If you have responsibilities or an interest in the disciplines above, we invite you to join us.

If you have a question about our SIG, please contact our Chair or IWFM’s Community team directly.
