Business Continuity Institute - What is Business Continuity?

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a programme of activities carried out by an organisation to help ensure they are suitably prepared to deal with any unexpected incident or change in business circumstances that may impact their day to day activities.

A well planned and executed BCM solution will not only ensure an organisation is more prepared for future change but the cross discipline and holistic nature of BCM activities may also highlight or bring about positive changes to streamline numerous operational activities and processes.
