ResilienceONE® BCM software developer provides guidelines to building a framework
for best practices and assuring regulatory compliance, based on the BCP Genome™
Plymouth Meeting, PA - February 26, 2013 | Strategic BCP, Inc., business continuity management (BCM) specialists and developers of cloud-based ResilienceONE® BCM software, today announced the availability of an insightful report, "Evaluating and Applying Relevant BCM Standards," derived from experience gained while building the company's own framework—the BCP Genome™.
This BCM Professional's Playbook shows continuity professionals how they can map mandatory compliance regulations, industry standards, and industry best practices into their own gold-standard frameworks for comprehensive business continuity planning and management.
From this document, BCM professionals can pinpoint key strengths and gaps in widely known industry standards, and glean tips for compiling a unique framework for their own needs by:
- Differentiating between setting up planning structures vs. developing specific plans
- Pinpointing standards most focused on business and IT recovery
- Identifying eight key areas as a basis for any business continuity framework
"The BCP Genome—originally developed in 2006 and updated several times since then—provides a blueprint for any continuity professional wanting to build their own framework of BC principles," says Frank Perlmutter, president of Strategic BCP and co-author of the original BCP Genome. "This playbook communicates both the findings of the original BCP Genome and a checklist of steps an individual can take to construct a similar framework for his or her own unique application."
