Business Continuity planning provides repeatable results.
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a planning process that can be applied to any business, small or large, that helps to manage the risks that threaten its survival by providing a framework to ensure the resilience of the business so that it can continue to operate in the event of any disruption. Business Continuity is not something implemented at the time of a disaster; Business Continuity refers to those activities performed daily to maintain service, consistency, and recover ability. A successful Business Continuity Plan is built on stable processes that provide repeatable results.
