1. Policy sets out an organization’s aims, principles and approach for business continuity management. It specifies what is required to be achieved or delivered without prescribing how it is to be carried out. A policy can be fulfilled by one or several processes working in unison. Policy requirements are typically expressed in simple single statement format or limited to short paragraphs comprising of a few statements.


Note: The BCM policy sets directives and guides the Executive Management and BCM Steering Committee when making key decisions in the BCM program and BCP projects. The policy will, typically, specify the key phases in the BCP project (or BC planning methodology), the main activities and deliverables for each phase. The policy should not specify detailed activities and tasks for each BCP project.
