Business Continuity Management

Recovery | Control | Solution

Business Continuity Management (BCM) provides the framework for determining an organization’s risk of being exposed to internal and/or external threats. The objective of implementing and operating a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) is to enable an organization and its managers to respond effectively to threats such as natural disasters or data breaches, but also to raw material shortages or sudden market fluctuations. Read more in an interview with BCM expert Frank Machhalz.

To protect the business interests of a company and to increase security in a crisis situation, a BCMS comprises the following areas:

✔️ Disaster recovery
✔️ Business recovery
✔️ Crisis Management
✔️ Incident management
✔️ Emergency management and emergency planning

In keeping with international standard ISO 22301, a Business Continuity Management System emphasizes the importance of:

✔️ Understanding the requirements for continuity and readiness and the need to establish policies and objectives for managing business continuity
✔️ Implementation and operation of controls and measures to manage the general continuity risks of a company
✔️ Monitoring and reviewing the performance and effectiveness of the BCMS
✔️ Continuous improvement based on objective measurements

The current corona pandemic would appear to be a real boost to the debate on the subject. DQS talked to BCM expert and DQS auditor Mr. Frank Machalz about aspects of risk management and the purpose of BCM certification.
