Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a management discipline that provides a framework for an organisation to build resilience, providing the capability for an effective response to events that might threaten it. A key element of this discipline is the process of preparing contingency plans for situations that may never occur. Such plans aim to ensure that an organisation’s critical functions continue to operate during a crisis, and that the remainder can be recovered in a controlled manner.
All too often, the time, complexity, and cost of introducing BCM and developing contingency plans are seen as disproportionate to the benefit. To overcome these obstacles, Merrycon provides a package of structured consultancy aimed at enabling organisations to introduce BCM and deploy effective plans quickly, easily, and at an affordable price.
