Business Continuity Management Training

This Business Continuity Management training course explains the basic principles and benefits of the Business Continuity Management process. Through real-world examples and scenarios, employees learn about their roles and responsibilities during a business disruption or incident.

Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 30 minutes


In recent years several incidents — such as natural disasters, pandemic viruses, transportation issues, terrorism and information failures — have made the headlines. In addition to the tragic loss of life it has caused, the spread of COVID-19 in 2020 is highlighting the upheaval these incidents can bring to our day-to-day business activities and the global economy.

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a process that identifies threats that can disrupt a business and finds ways to reduce or remove the risk and impact of those threats. BCM is not just up to management, all employees have a role in preparing for these potential incidents and minimising the impact that they could have on their firm. BCM not only makes good business sense but it is also the law for financial services firms in certain jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom and the United States, hence the need for business continuity management training.

In our complex global business environment, firms must prepare for major disruptions that may affect their business operations and reputation, as well as impact employees, customers and partners.

One hallmark of a successful firm is the ability to plan for and effectively respond to disasters or other unexpected events. Our Thomson Reuters Compliance Learning course provides you with an overview of the benefits of Business Continuity Management and your role and responsibilities during an emergency or major incident, with a highlight on the impact of COVID-19. 

By the end of this online training course learners will be able to:

  • Identify the risks that can impact your firm’s operations
  • Explain the benefits of BCM
  • Apply BCM strategies to mitigate common threats facing businesses
  • Identify their BCM role and responsibilities
