Resilience of your organization is a guarantee of success
What is Business Continuity Management ?
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is the strategic, tactical and operational ability of an organization to respond to emergencies or crises at an acceptable, predetermined level. BCM represents a holistic management process to counteract emergency situations with preventive measures and to increase the resilience of business processes.
Do you already have a plan B if your service provider suddenly can no longer deliver, or the building is no longer accessible due to flooding? Emergencies and crises can result in losses in the millions or cause damage that is no longer viable for a company.
In BCM, we consider the following worst-case scenarios: Loss of ICT, loss of personnel, and loss of service providers and buildings. The difference between ITSCM and BCM in the event of an ICT failure is that in IT service continuity management we look at the restart and recovery time of data centers, IT applications and basic IT services. BCM is about the recovery time (RTO) of business processes.
What can companies do?
Risk-minimizing measures and an established BCM process enable business processes to resume as quickly as possible in the event of a business interruption.
Business Continuity Management represents a holistic management process according to ISO 22301 to counteract crisis and emergency situations with preventive measures and increase resilience of business processes.
