What is Business Continuity Management (BCM)?

“Business Continuity Management is an 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 that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value creating activities. BCM must be owned and fully integrated into the organisation as an embedded management process.’’ (Source: BCI)
