Business Continuity Managers Association of the Philippines (BCMAP) was formed in 2006 with the goals to organize forums, conduct certification classes, and promote the best practices and standards of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. BCMAP aims to address the needs of enterprises from various sectors in the country and ensure the protection of human lives and assets in the event of any disruption or crisis in business.

The group started to organize forums thru the sponsorship of companies like IBM, Citibank, ADB, BSP, ePLDT, Symantec, Meralco and Zuellig. They have also approached Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII) from the US and the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) from UK to provide subject matter experts on the professional
practices of business continuity. The forum continues to evolve and collaborate with various government agencies like NDRRMC, BFP, DOH and NGOs like WHO, Red Cross, Zuellig Foundation, among others to continue to promote the practice of Business Continuity in the country. They also encouraged and mentor practitioners to get certified as Business Continuity practitioners with DRII or The BCI to ensure implementation of best practices in the country.
