In recent years a number of incidents — such as natural disasters, pandemic viruses, transportation issues, terrorism and information failures — have made the headlines. The impact of such events on businesses can be severe. If a firm has to close down or its employees are unable to get to work, it could face a tremendous loss of business. Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a management process that identifies threats that can disrupt a business and finds ways to reduce or remove the risk and impact of those threats. BCM is not just up to management; all employees have a role in preparing for these potential incidents and minimizing the impact that they could have on their firm. BCM not only makes good business sense but it is also the law for financial services firms in certain jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom and the United States, hence the need for business continuity management training.
The topics covered in the course include:
- What is BCM?
- Identifying threats
- Roles and responsibilities.
Business Continuity Management training courses are driven by practical examples and interactive scenarios to ensure users truly understand and recognize the issues of most importance to your business and learn to instinctively act to support them.
