Business Continuity Management

Business Continuity Management is the process through which organisations aim to continue the delivery of their key products and services during and following a disruption to normal activity and to recover afterwards.  Effective business continuity is the first line of defence for any organisation to ensure they are able to maintain the delivery of their core services and, in the long run, to assure their survival.  Organisations should consider a wide range of potentially disruptive challenges both internally and externally:

  • internal
    • ICT system failure
    • power cut
    • fire
    • theft 
    • vandalism
    • illness of key staff
  • external 
    • severe weather
    • terrorist attack
