Business Continuity Management for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises: ‘How to survive a major disaster or failure’
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is concerned with identifying the crucial aspects of your business that you can’t afford to lose and protecting them in the event of a disaster. Any incident, large or small, can cause major disruptions to your organisation. However by implementing an effective BCM plan now, rather than waiting until disaster strikes, you will be able to get back to business as quickly as possible. Delays in doing so could mean you lose business to your competitors as well as valuable time and money.
