WHAT IS BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BCMS)
ISO 22301 specifies the format and provisions for implementing and maintaining a business continuity management system (BCMS) that reaches business continuity appropriate to the amount and type of impact that the business organization may or may not accept in the aftermath of a disruption. The consequences of maintaining a BCMS are defined by the organization's legal, regulatory, organizational, and industrial needs, goods and services given, procedures used, the organization's size and structure, and the requirements of its interested parties.
A BCMS emphasizes the importance of:
1-Understanding the organization's needs and the necessity of establishing business continuity policies and objectives,
2-Operating and maintaining processes, capabilities, and response structures to ensure the organization will survive disruptions,
3-Monitoring and reviewing the performance and effectiveness of the BCMS,
4-Continual improvement based on qualitative and quantitative measures.
Benefits of a business continuity management system:
The purpose of a BCMS is to prepare for, provide and maintain controls and capabilities for managing an organization's overall ability to continue to operate during disruptions. In achieving this, the organization is:
From a business perspective:-Supporting its strategic objectives; -Creating a competitive advantage; -Protecting and enhancing its reputation and credibility, -Contributing to organizational resilience;
From a financial perspective:
-Reducing legal and financial exposure; -Reducing direct and indirect costs of disruptions.
