Business Continuity Management
UNDP's Business Continuity Management (BCM) policy sets the framework for the organization to respond to internal and external threats and ensures the organization’s preparedness, resilience and ability to continue delivering its mandate when such threats occur.
BCM in UNDP is in line with the UN Organizational Resilience Management System (ORMS) and acts as the emergency management framework for the organization. It includes the IT Disaster Recovery Plan (ITDRP), security plans (which include crisis, incident, and emergency management) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP).
A BCP is based on a Risk Assessment (RA) and Business Impact Analysis (BIAs). They build on existing Enterprise Risk Management policies and country-specific Security Risk Assessments (SRA) while considering the overall organizational mandate and continuation of business.
