Business Continuity Management


Business Continuity Management  means is ensuring the continuity or uninterrupted provision of operations and services. Business Continuity Management is an on-going process with several different but complementary elements. Planning for business continuity is a comprehensive process that includes disaster recovery, business recovery, business resumption, and contingency planning.


BCM should be business owned and incorporates a broad spectrum of professional disciplines.

Provides a strategic and operational framework for the company to be more resilient to interruption and loss.

It should be an integral part of Corporate Governance.


BCM focuses on assuring continuous business processes and is a major factor in an organization's survival during and after a disruption. 

Companies that do not have good business continuity plans often fail to recover from a business disruption. 


There are many risks that may threaten your organization by disrupting your business processes. These risks include traditional emergencies like fires, floods, earthquakes, risks from  terrorism and telecommunications failures, theft, employee sabotage.

BCM efforts are likely to make money for your company  as they serve to minimize disruptions and financial loss which might arise from the smallest of events. 

BCM means increased reliability and productivity for your company. These means competitive advantage and increased market share.

Business Continuity Management is a relatively new term that is often thought of as another way to say "disaster recovery" but it  much more. Business Continuity Management includes disaster recovery, business recovery, business resumption, contingency planning,  crisis and Emergency management.

Business Continuity Management therefore, is a comprehensive process to ensure the continuation and improvement of business in the face of whatever challenges your company may face. 

Continuity planning requires that these many processes be used together, to create a complete continuity plan. The plan must be maintained and updated as business processes change. Continuity plans must be tested. 

Business Continuity Management will enable your organisation to understand the risks and exposures that it faces, and provide you with a clear understanding of what is needed to ensure its survival, through preventative measures. 

Business Continuity Management is a process driven from the top of the organisation and not the other way around.

The  Financial Services Authority are keen to see effective BCM deployed at strategic level in all financial organisations. The forthcoming Basel 2 regulations also call for BCM to be established at industry good practice levels.

Business Continuity Management is a 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 which safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value creating activities.

Business Continuity Management is recognised as a critical element of the public and private organisation environment and has achieved new levels of professional competence and maturity within a relatively short period of time.
