Frequently Asked Questions

Business Continuity Management

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a comprehensive approach to ensure the critical functions of an organization continue to operate in the face of disruptions or crises. It encompasses risk assessment, business impact analysis, and the development of resilience strategies, plans, and exercises.

In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, disruptions – whether natural, technological, or man-made – are inevitable. BCM prepares businesses to respond effectively to these challenges, minimizing downtime, financial losses, and damage to reputation.

While both are integral to organizational resilience, BCM is a holistic approach focusing on the entire organization’s survival during a crisis. In contrast, DR specifically targets the recovery of IT systems and data post-disruption.

A typical BCP includes a risk assessment, business impact analysis, recovery strategies, crisis communication plan, list of critical functions, roles and responsibilities, training and awareness programs, and a schedule for testing and reviews.

It’s advisable to review and update a BCP annually, or when there are significant changes to the business, its operations, or the environment it operates in. However, regular drills and exercises can provide insights for more frequent minor tweaks.

No. Businesses of all sizes can face disruptions. While the scale and complexity of BCM might vary, the core principles apply universally – from startups to multinational corporations.

If your business has operations, processes, or functions whose disruption could lead to financial losses, reputational damage, regulatory penalties, or any other significant negative impacts, then you would benefit from BCM.

While it’s possible to develop a BCP in-house, especially if you have the expertise, many organizations benefit from external consultants who bring in-depth knowledge, a fresh perspective, and best practices from various industries.

Regular training, workshops, and simulations can help employees understand their roles in BCM. Effective communication, leadership buy-in, and fostering a culture of resilience are also crucial.

The true test of BCM is how effectively an organization can respond to and recover from disruptions. Regular testing, drills, and after-action reviews provide tangible metrics. Feedback from stakeholders, downtime statistics, financial impact analyses, and recovery time objectives (RTO) can also offer valuable insights.
