The findings of research undertaken by The Chartered Management Institute on business continuity are summarized. There is considerable evidence supporting a case for Business Continuity Management (BCM). When looking at the issue of what organizations fear, what they plan for, and what disrupts them, there is considerable discrepancy between what they fear and what actually happens to them. Despite the benefits of BCM, the majority of organizations do not have Business Continuity Plans in place and awareness of them is low.
