Keeping UK businesses safe in cyberspace [external link]
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is about preparing your organisation for potential incidents that may affect your ability to operate normally, such as a fire or flood. It is a process of analysing your business for vulnerabilities and putting measures in place to ensure you can deal with disruption.
Any incident - whether it is large or small - can cause major disruption to your business. However, if you plan in advance you will be able to help your day-to-day business recover more quickly. BCM can help you prepare to cope with disruptions and continue to deliver your business activities and reduce potential harm to staff.
The BCM process can also reveal inefficiencies and highlight possible savings, so it is possible to make savings through BCM even if you are not affected by an incident.
