Business Continuity Management (BCM) is more than just “disaster recovery”, it is about prevention of loss, and preparing for disruptive incidents that may cripple organization functionality, reputation, or financial stability.
The Caribbean region is vulnerable to several naturally occurring hazards such as hurricanes and earthquakes, and while these ‘major’ incidents can have devastating effects on an unprepared organization, other incidents, such as loss of key personnel due to illness, loss of IT data, loss of communication, electricity, fire, water outage or active shooter, all these can be just as consequential.
A Business Continuity Plan can help when faced with that kind of organizational disruption. It is for this reason that BCM is necessary and can improve business resilience, increase reputation and ensure those customer requirements are continually met.
