Continuity Management (BCM/SCM)

Find out more about our risk management services

The purpose of Continuity Management is to create a resilient organisation with an ability to handle, reduce the consequences and the downtime of an incident.

Graph of operational level against time after an incident before and after implementing continuity management.

To develop a Continuity Plan, you must first conduct a Continuity-related Risk Analysis to identify:

  • Socially important and/or Business critical commitments and functions
  • Internal and external critical dependencies
  • Maximum tolerable downtime (interruption)
  • The Capability assessment of the critical dependencies
  • Suggestions for measures to increase the ability to handle disruptions in the organization

LR has developed a methodology in three steps to identify the variables and create Continuity Plans based on ISO 22301 and 22399.

The method works for the private (BIA - Business Impact Analysis) and public sector (SIA - Societal Impact Analysis) Continuity Management. It works just as well on technical systems as it does for e.g. health care- and childcare-related activities - "the soft sectors".
