Establishing Business Continuity Management System

Business continuity management is the need of every modern organization and a key process for ensuring the continuity of business processes. Depending on specificities of a business segment, business can tolerate only very short (seconds or minutes) or relatively long (days) breaks of business continuity, but every business process interruption causes direct financial and operative consequences, and the damage increases with time.

Business of organizations of today to a great extent depends on the systems based on information-communication technology, which are subject to failures and crashes. However, business also depends on elements like information, people and business space.

In order to prevent or control the consequences of continuity break in some parts of the business, it is necessary to come up with the Business Continuity Management System, BCMS. Business Continuity Plans, BCP, are developed within business continuity management, together with the framework for their refreshing, maintenance, and adjustment.
