Business Continuity Management (BCM) is often described as a business-critical activity, but it is frequently confused with the parallel concept of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM).
80% of organizations that are faced with a significant business discontinuity and do not have adequate and appropriate plans do not survive the event.
