Business Continuity Management System

The purpose of this standard is to help organisations to establish and maintain a Business Continuity Management System; which is a set of interrelated elements that organisations use to manage and control Business disruptions / impacts. These elements include all of the policies, procedures, processes, plans, practices, roles, responsibilities, resources, and structures that are used to manage these risks and to protect against business disruptions.

The adoption of a Business Continuity Management System is a strategic decision for an organisation to help consider the influences of its needs and objectives, requirements, the organisational processes used and the size and structure of the organisation. Business Continuity Management System scaled to the size and complexity of the organisation makes it suitable for SME and Large corporates alike.

The Business Continuity Management System focuses on key principles by applying a risk management process and it gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed. This helps support the organisations strategic direction and performance.
