Business continuity management is a holistic management process that identifies potential threats to an organization and the impacts to business operations those threats, if realized, might cause.

It provides a framework for building organizational resilience with the capability of an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value-creating activities (Source: ISO 22301:2012).
