Business Continuity Management
Business Continuity Management (or BCM) involves organisations putting in place arrangements and plans to enhance resilience against disruption to services and activities.
It’s important that staff know how and why BCM plans are created, in order to safeguard their own service areas against potential disruption. This module will look at the statutory duties outlined by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 and identify some of the more common emergencies that might arise. We’ll explore the importance of promoting BCM within the community and introduce the ‘BCM lifecycle’.
Learning Outcomes for this module include:
Understand what Business Continuity Management is, why an organisation should practice BCM, how to ensure that BCM policy is constant across the organisation and embedded in its work and how to promote BCM.
Aware of why the Civil Contingencies Act(2004) is in place.
