Business continuity management (BCM) is a business-owned, business- driven process that establishes a strategic and operational framework to: Improve an organization’s resilience to help enable it to achieve its key objectives Provide a rehearsed method of restoring an organization’s critical products, services and suppliers Deliver a proven capability to manage business disruption and protect the organization’s brand and reputation Provide competitive advantage in the marketplace Give organizations the opportunity to strengthen and improve key business processes.
