BCM is a management process that identifies risk, threats and vulnerabilities that could impact
an entity's continued operations and provides a framework for building organizational resilience
and the capability for an effective response. The objective of Business Continuity Management
is to make the entity more resilient to potential threats and allow the entity to resume or
continue operations under adverse or abnormal conditions. This is accomplished by the
introduction of appropriate resilience strategies to reduce the likelihood and impact of a threat
and the development of plans to respond and recover from threats that cannot be controlled or
Or emergency management is the creation of plans through which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats; instead, it focuses on creating plans to decrease the effect of disasters. Failure to create a plan could lead to human mortality, lost revenue, and damage to assets. Currently in the United States 60 percent of businesses do not have emergency management plans. Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures.
