Business Continuity Planning - are you prepared for the worst?
30 April 2016
Business Continuity Management (BCM) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is the process an organisation undertakes to expose internal and external threats and carry out a risk assessment. This process identifies the probability and impact of risks and produces an activity document and a practical contingency plan to deal with them should they arise, including everything from extreme weather conditions and terrorism, to IT system failure and staff sickness.
Through the relationship with The Business Continuity Institute (BCI), CIPS members have access to the BCI Knowledge Bank which contains a wealth of information, including: the BCI’s Horizon Scan Report Business Case for BCM; and the BCM Survival Guide. In addition, the Continuity Magazine offers the latest thinking within the industry.
