Business Continuity Management Training

The Business Continuity Management curriculum is designed to give students an introduction to the fundamentals and advantages of the Business Continuity Management process. Employees learn about their responsibilities and roles during a business disruption or event through real-world examples and situations.


Several events — such as natural disasters, epidemic viruses, transportation difficulties, terrorism, and information failures — have captured the attention of the media in recent years.

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a method for identifying risks that could harm a company and for finding methods to reduce or eliminate the danger.

BCM is an initiative that permeates the whole organization, not just the leadership team; all employees must play a part in preparing for and reducing the potential damage that incidents might have on their company.

According to the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, every organization needs business continuitymanagement training. While BCM protects individuals from jobs being lost due to natural disasters or other unforeseen events that impact their operations, it also aids organizations in maintaining normal service delivery when people are temporarily relocated. It is therefore not only good for the company’s bottom line but also for the employees.

Firms must be prepared for enormous disruptions that may affect their business activities and reputation, as well as employees, consumers, and partners, in our increasingly complicated worldwide economy.

A hallmark of a successful business is its capacity to anticipate and manage crises or other unanticipated events.
