Business Continuity Management (BCM)
is about identifying those parts of your organisation that you can’t afford to lose – such as information, stock, premises, staff – and planning how to maintain these, if an incident occurs. Any incident, large or small, whether it is natural, accidental or deliberate, can cause major disruption to your organisation. But if you plan now, rather than waiting for it to happen, you will be able to get back to business in the quickest possible time. Delays could mean you lose valuable business to your competitors, or that your customers lose confidence in you.
The business continuity planning toolkit provided by the UK Government is a great resource that you can use yourself. It may be that you would like some expert help for any part or all of it so if you do, please get in touch with Business Resilience Solutions for an informal, no obligation discussion. The toolkit is available free here.
