Today’s businesses face the increasing challenge of managing complex operations across multiple entities as they integrate business partners, suppliers, and even competitors into an extended enterprise. The need for an effective risk reduction and business continuity management (BCM) program has never been so evident.

Now, Business continuity and disaster recovery plan have become an integral part of business success. A business continuity disaster recovery plan is essential for ensuring that IT systems will be available in the event of a broad range of disasters, from hardware failure to malicious attacks to natural disasters.

BCM involves planning for any potential disaster by identifying potential threats to an organization and analyzing their impact on the organization’s day-to-day operations. Effective BCM ensures the business is able to provide a minimum acceptable service in spite of a disaster, and helps preserve corporate reputation, image and revenue.
