At its core, business continuity management (BCM) is a process that identifies potential threats to an organization and the impacts on business operations that they could cause if they happen. This process provides a framework for building resilience of the organization and the ability to respond effectively. BCM can help organizations to reduce the negative effects and to protect business reputation under adverse circumstances, whether internal or external, to reduce downtime and recovery costs.
Like continuity, sustainability focuses on maintaining the processes and procedures that help businesses survive unexpected threats. Recognizing that businesses operate in an environment of constant change, sustainability focuses on how best to preserve the value in these complex environments.
But effective BCM process can happen through synergy of administrative and organizational activities (strategies and plans) and operation of flexible, intelligent security systems (ISS). The innovative solutions for the development of the systems are closely related to the requirements formulated in the separate stages of the process of building the BCM of the organization, incl. sustainabili ty, providing warning and prevention of the threats, prevention of terrorist acts and thus ensuring the safety of people and the competitive advantage of business. Understanding the value of connecting different security systems and how they can be integrated is a key component in
developing more intelligent security.
The link between risk management and BCM plays a significant role here. Risk management strategies (risk avoidance, risk acceptance or risk mitigation – by risk sharing or risk transfer) are responses to a “preliminary event” of perceived and assessed risks. Most BCM strategies and tactics focus on the processes that must occur after an event or disaster. The goals of these processes are to return the business to normal operation as efficiently and effectively as possible. Namely the relationship between the process of building BCM and ISS development is the subject of this publication
