Cyber attacks, natural disasters, power failures, industrial action and human error: these risks all have the potential to severely disrupt business operations and are often unpredictable.
A growing body of legislation and the current cyber threat landscape has made organisations even more aware of the risks of cyber attacks, and the importance of being able to effectively respond to and recover from a business disruption.
Business continuity management (BCM) involves managing risks to ensure that critical business functions continue in the event of a disruptive incident, and is accepted as the most comprehensive approach to organisational resilience.
Effective BCM can be achieved by developing a business continuity management system (BCMS).
