Convergence of Business Continuity & Risk Management

By Frank Perlmutter (CBCP, MBCI), Strategic BCP®

Abstract: The demands placed upon Business Continuity, Risk Management, and Disaster Recovery professionals increase every day. As a result, organizations need to reassess their approach Business Continuity Management. If they don’t, they’ll get left behind, affected by continued adherence to outdated methods. The convergence of these disciplines is ongoing. Emerging regulations, frameworks, and standards place greater emphasis on risk management. As decision makers accept this evolution, Business Continuity increasingly becomes a subset of Risk Management. How the process is implemented—the value it brings a risk-based model—determines whether or not the process is a sound.
