Business Continuity Management (BCM)

Is your business ready for a disaster? Do you believe your organization could manage through a serious incident and maintain continuity of operations? How can you be sure? Statistics tell us that nearly every firm, establishment, or institution will encounter a disaster event in its lifetime. It could be physical disasters such as a tornado, fire, or flood. It could be a cyber-attack such as ransomware or a data breach. It could be people-focused, such as a pandemic or active shooter event. It could be social media attacks on your brand. Or it could be one of thousands of other issues. Half of these events are likely to threaten the very existence of the business.


Research shows that the rate of disaster events continues to increase, as does the cost of suffering a disaster. As a point of reference, the 2021 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Overview published by IBM Security and the Ponemon Institute found that the average cost of a data breach in the United States is $9.05 million. 


Research also shows that with a well-managed Business Continuity Management program, particularly one that can quickly identify and contain incidents, organizations can substantially reduce the likelihood of facing a significant disaster and can reduce the impact to the business should the disaster occur.

"Athletico began its partnership with BluTinuity and Scott Owens in 2013 with a simple HIPAA Security Risk Assessment. At that time, we had roughly 75 physical therapy clinics in the greater Chicago area. Since then, Athletico has grown to over 600 clinics in 14 states, and with this growth, we have experienced a complex, challenging, and ever-changing organizational risk profile. BluTinuity has helped our team understand the risks, develop information security requirements and controls, and grow its Information Security, Business Continuity, and Incident Response programs to scale with the business. We value Scott’s expertise and would highly recommend BluTinuity as a trusted advisor."

"Following an audit, WPS engaged BluTinuity to help design and implement the key foundations of a new Business Continuity Management (BCM) program.  We have enjoyed working with Scott because of his collaborative and educational approach.  Not only did we end up with a series of program documents that meet our compliance needs, Scott has taught our team how to manage each segment of the BCM program into the future.  BluTinuity advised us on many practical aspects of improving our Business Continuity acumen, and we would recommend them to organizations needing any piece of the BCM life cycle."
