There are so many myths about Business Continuity Management (BCM). Some say it is only for the large multinational corporations; some say it is all about having backup information technology (IT) systems; some say it is merely another items on the compliance checklist.
Like any emerging professional practices, BCM has a fancy set of terminology and sometimes it is difficult to understand what they truly mean. With the introduction of ISO23001, definitions of some of the BCM parameters like Recovery Time Objective (RTO) have got standardized definitions. However, there are not any standardized methodology to determine parameters.
Any one may determine these critical parameters using their own creative methodology and sometimes, even introducing their own interpretation on the definitions. Many of the BCM programs are getting fancier with different innovative methodologies and definitions and this is one of the reasons why we have so many myths surrounding the realm of BCM.
However, BCM is talking about business survival during difficult times and it should be going back to the basics – what are the needs of your organization in such difficult times and how such are needs be addressed through your BCM program.
