Scott Ream co-founded Virtual Corporation in 1994 specifically to assist organizations in the public and private sectors with implementation of appropriately scaled, sustainable business continuity programs. With his background in information technology and business process re-engineering, Mr. Ream recognized that sustainable business continuity was achievable by placing responsibility for its implementation in the hands of the entire management team similar to how organizations distributed development of their annual financial budgets. Mr.Ream has written numerous articles on the subject of business continuity planning and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences. In 2003, he introduced the Business Continuity Maturity Model® based on seven years of industry research. This landmark model provides an objective measure of organizational development and staff skill in business continuity implementation and “state-of-preparedness.” The BCMM®, a free download from Virtual’s website, now in v2.0 includes a comprehensive crosswalk to the 3 Private Sector Preparedness (PS-PREP) standards.
