Business Continuity Management
Business continuity (BC) is defined as the capability of the organisation to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive incident.
You can’t schedule disasters or mission critical events, but you can plan to mitigate their effects. Whether it’s fires and floods, cyber attacks, or pandemics (including the Coronavirus) , businesses need to have a plan in place for resiliency and recovery.
Although often described as “just common sense,” it’s really about taking responsibility and taking business continuity seriously.
Such planning establishes risk management processes and procedures that aim to prevent interruptions to mission-critical services, and re-establish full function to the organisation as quickly and smoothly as possible.
