The aim of this course is to explore the importance and interrelationship of, Business Continuity Management (BCM) and Reputation Risk Management (RRM) as part of an organisation’s total risk and governance management framework. 


Organisations must be fully equipped to respond effectively to disasters or other extraordinary circumstances that cause major disruption to normal operations. The most widely accepted strategy for addressing the risks of major disruption to operations is to implement a business continuity plan (BCP). Having a business continuity plan, as well as plans to protect the organisation’s public reputation in the immediate aftermath of a major unplanned event or crisis, is a critical aspect of an organisation’s risk management framework. 

This course explores:  
  • What is business continuity management?  
  • Standards and guidelines  
  • BCM and related activities  
  • What is reputational risk?  
  • Tools and processes to manage reputational risk  
  • Social media and reputational risk  
  • Case studies
