What is Business Continuity Management (BCM)?
Business continuity management helps determine how capable an organisation is with regards to continuing the delivery of its products and services during a disruption. The product/service deliveries would have to be within acceptable time frames, and at a predefined capacity.
Business Continuity is one of several resilience strategies that can be employed by the University.
Why do Business Continuity?
What are you going to do if you lost access to your key resources and dependencies e.g., staff, systems, premises, buildings/facilities, equipment, suppliers, or information?
Do you know what your priority services are, who to notify (internal and external stakeholders), and how to carry on your operations?
