Business Continuity Solutions, Inc. Launches Public Sector Sales Initiative for Disaster Recovery

Company Responds to Increased Demand From Municipalities and Other Public Agencies After Hurricane Irene; Management Also Relays Commitment to Public Company Advancement by Retaining The GSL Group, LLC

GRANITE FALLS, NC--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Business Continuity Solutions, Inc. ("BCS") (PINKSHEETS: BUCS) announced today the creation of a new business unit that will focus on sales of the Company's backup and disaster recovery systems and rugged computing products to public sector agencies and departments throughout the U.S.

The business unit will be headed by Doug Carter, a 20-year law enforcement and human resources veteran who joins the Company as Public Sector Account Manager. In addition to BCS' proprietary products and services, the Company is now an authorized reseller for Getac, one of the leading ruggedized computing solutions suppliers in the world. BCS will offer Getac's rugged computing products across a four-state area -- North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia.

Getac rugged computers are designed to reliably operate in harsh usage environments and conditions, such as strong vibrations, extreme temperatures and wet or dusty conditions. They are uniquely designed from inception for the type of rough use typified by these conditions, not just in the external housing but in the internal components as well, and are used by the military, law enforcement, emergency medical services, utility, transportation, field service and mobile workforces.

Commenting on BCS' new initiative, CEO Ramsey Dellinger stated, "We are excited to have Doug's expertise and commitment to an important segment like disaster recovery solutions for the public sector. The recent hurricane has put agencies on notice, more so than ever before. His arrival is also timely to spearhead sales of Getac's rugged computer products, as they go hand-in-hand with our new public agency business unit."

Melissa Payton, channel sales manager for Getac, added, "We look forward to working closely with Doug and BCS as a Getac authorized reseller in the public safety and other rugged vertical markets. We truly believe this relationship will be mutually beneficial for both companies."

In other news, BCS management has also relayed its commitment to solidifying its status as a public company. The Company has hired The GSL Group, LLC, headed by Randy Lewis, CFA, MBA, to assist it with investor communications and public market disclosure, the latter pertaining specifically to attaining "Current" status on OTC Markets.

Mr. Dellinger commented, "As a relatively new public company, we are extremely happy with what Randy and GSL bring to the table. We are committed to providing accurate and timely information and as our business grows, we know we will need this expertise. Randy brings over 14 years of experience working with public companies, and his professional and educational background is paramount for us to position ourselves for the growth we expect in the coming quarters. It also allows for our management team to focus on company operations during this busy time of expansion."
