Business Continuity Management (BCM) is the process by which an organization prepares for future incidents or crisis that could jeopardize the organization’s core mission and its short term and long-term ability to continue operations and meet stakeholder expectations. Crisis management (CM) is considered a key component of BCM, which addresses how the corporate or public sector entity will inform the general public, its staff, its business partners, and various stakeholders of a disaster or crisis and the steps being taken to resume business operations and minimize internal/external stakeholder impact. A crisis management plan (CMP), is a consolidated portfolio of activities consisting of preventive and reactive measures executable by any organization to effectively mitigate and manage risks often implied by a crisis or event.
