DRI International (originally known as Disaster Recovery Institute) is a non-profit organization and a global BCM education and certification body. As such, it sets the standard for professionalism in business continuity planning and has provided the profession's premier certification and education programs since 1988. There are over 8000 active business continuity professionals from various industries and business sectors maintaining DRI International certifications worldwide. These certifications ensure employers that candidates understand the tenets of business continuity and maintain their level of knowledge through continuing education. DRI International offers education in BCM at major industry events and through the corporate training program. The organization's International Affiliates insure that BCM best practice is taught and available throughout the world.
As an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) certified standards development organization (SDO) as well as other International Standards Committees, DRI International has an obligation to participate in discussions and the formulation of new standards. We take this role seriously. More importantly, those proposing or revising standards understand that including DRI International is not optional. DRI International is the oldest, the largest, and the most broad-based organization of its kind in the world. For more than 20 years, the organization has certified BCM professionals from more than 95 countries and conducted training in more than 45 of those nations. DRI International currently certifies individuals in a number of languages including English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Portuguese and Italian languages with plans to expand into other languages in the coming years.
