EXPLAINED: Business Continuity Management guide

Airmic, BCI, FM Global

Every risk manager is aware that not every threat or risk can be completely avoided and businesses must plan what they will do if such risk events occurs. The aim of business continuity (BC) is for the business to recognise and respond to a disruptive incident, enable the crucial elements of the business to remain operational, restore the business to its original state and to potentially enable it to adapt to a new state.

Technological advances and the lowering cost of computing makes data available to businesses like never before. Successful businesses are using this data to review business models and drive transformation.
