"Adopt Risk Management Approaches" Says Business Continuity Planning Experts

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 September 2011 --There has been a growing demand for having a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place as the risk-aware culture becomes more prevalent among businesses operating in today's ever dynamic environment.

According to Dr Goh Moh Heng PHd BCCE DRCE BCCLA who leads the management team for both BCM Institute and Business Continuity Consultancy firm, GMH Pte Ltd in the recent Meet the Experts Seminar,  both practices of Business Continuity and Risk Management share common objectives although the former focuses on identifing and mitigating risks before they happen, whereas the latter focuses on planning for recovery after a disaster (risk) occurs. As a result, both practices inevitably correlate with each other while helping organizations in spelling their business strategies from preempting risks to dealing with inoperability of busineses.



A structured risk analysis and review outcome is fundamental in prescibing an organizations' risk strategies leading to setting up of an effective Business Continuity Plan (BCP)  Knowing the unknown remains as a major challenge to risk managers and organizations.
