Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a holistic management process that identifies potential impacts that threaten an Organization and provides a framework for building resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value creating activities. This encompasses the management of recovery or continuity in the event of a disaster as well as the management of the overall program through training, rehearsals, and reviews, to ensure the plan stays current and up to date.

The Business Continuity Management Process combines 6 key elements:

  • Understanding Your Business
  • Continuity Strategies
  • Developing a BCM Response
  • Establishing a Continuity Culture
  • Exercising, Rehearsal & Testing
  • The BCM Management Process

The Business Continuity Management Program is an ongoing management and governance processes supported by senior management and resourced to ensure that the necessary steps are taken to identify the impact of potential losses, maintain viable recovery strategies and plans, and ensure continuity of products/services through exercising, rehearsal, testing, training, maintenance and assurance.

Why should you attend: In today's world, information security and business continuity planning cannot be completed without each other. According to a recent article in e Week News, U.S. lawmakers are contemplating new enforcement tools and financial incentives to spur better security practices after a report card on federal information security showed government CIOs managed a barely passing D+ average. "I think they take their eye off the ball," said Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., chairman of the House Committee on Government Reform. "This demands constant attention. Every day they have to be thinking about this."

Disaster recovery for Technology is becoming an increasingly important aspect of enterprise computing. As devices, systems, and networks become ever more complex, there are simply more things that can go wrong. As a consequence, recovery plans have also become more complex. Organizations become more reliant on these technological solutions as they grow in complexity as well.

There are many risks that may threaten your organization by disrupting your business processes. These risks include traditional emergencies like fires, floods, earthquakes and tornados as well as risks form physical and cyber terrorism, cybercrime, computer and telecommunications failures, theft, employee sabotage, and labor strife. Any one of these can all be very disruptive for your business.
