TOP QUESTIONS on Business Continuity Management

Business Continuity Management, also known as BCM, is a range of techniques and strategies that help organisations prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. BCM plans typically include disaster recovery procedures and emergency procedures, which can reduce the impact of a disaster. They also identify how an organisation will maintain services or produce goods following an emergency.

The three main areas of BCM are Recovery, Continuity, and Resiliency. Recovery is a plan which dictates how an organisation will recover from a disaster. Continuity is a plan which ensures that essential business functions continue after a major disruption or emergency. Resiliency is a plan which ensures that the organisation as a whole withstands any potential crisis.

Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is a technique that involves an organisation developing a plan for responding to a variety of potential emergencies. Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a broader process that can include BCP, but also includes other aspects such as disaster recovery and emergency preparedness.

A business continuity plan typically encompasses the following:

  • Communication with your stakeholders.
  • Establishing responsibilities for employees.
  • Developing a crisis response team, including members of senior management.
  • Documenting emergency plans, policies, and procedures.
  • Identifying emergency resources available in your region or industry.
  • Creating a plan to keep the business running during a crisis.

BCM helps with the recovery process by preparing for potential disasters from events such as floods, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, fire, computer failures, and more. They will also look at what happens when key people are not available or when records or equipment are destroyed.
