Business Continuity Management is a holistic process designed to ensure that business critical operations continue even in disruptive situations. The ultimate goal of any BCM is to enable organizations to respond instantly and effectively to the impacts of a range of threats that could degrade or even stop the business services and products.
To build a BCM system, it is essential to understand your organization in depth – its functions, their criticality to the overall business operation and the interdependencies among functions.It’s about being able to look at your organization from a different perspective, we call this the Impact Centered Approach (ICA), but more on that later.
Most businesses find it extremely difficult to allot time and resources to accurately map out the operational functions and organizational structure. As a result, business organizations face the challenge of understanding the potential impacts of losing some of their important operational functions.
Are you looking for an ISO 22301 certified Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)? Do you want to make sure your organization’s essential functions and services are available when needed? The best Continuity Plan (BCP) starts with the right consultant that can understand your functional requirements, map out your organizational structure and thoroughly understand the risks to your organization.
