The Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program is moving forward, but no one really knows how soon it will be rolled out. Congress asked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to create and implement a voluntary program of accreditation and certification programs for private entities that encourage private sector preparedness including disaster management, emergency management and business continuity programs.

The reviews for this program are mixed. Can there really be one set of standards for all businesses to follow? Will there be a financial ROI to incentivize its adoption? Preparedness should be an integral part of doing business. Time will tell if PS-Prep is the best way to do it.
