Business Continuity Management (BCM)
Business Continuity Management is an holistic management process that identifies potential impacts that threaten an organisation and provides a framework for building resilience and the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value creating activities.
BCM must be owned and fully integrated into the organisation as an embedded management process. BCM aims to improve an organisation?s resilience. By identifying, in advance, the potential impacts of a wide variety of sudden disruptions to the organisation?s ability to succeed it is able to prioritise the efforts of various other specialists aiming to achieve resilience in their areas of
expertise such as security, facilities and IT.
