A new academic paper focuses on business continuity management in organizations that use modern e-business technologies, discussing the need to ‘make the shift from traditional business continuity management towards ‘e-Business Continuity Management’ (e-BCM)’: an approach which is more suitable for modern technological environments.
‘Adaptive E-Business Continuity Management: Evidence from the Financial Sector’ was written by Milica Labus, Marijana Despotović-Zrakić, Zorica Bogdanović, Dušan Baraćand and Snežana Popović from the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade, and the School for Computing, Union University, Belgrade.
The paper defines ‘a comprehensive framework for the implementation of an adaptive eBCM adjustable to changes in the business environment’. The framework consists of practical steps for the defining elements of a business continuity management system and has been implemented and evaluated within three financial organizations.
The key finding is that business impact analysis and the continual improvement of the business continuity management system are the driving factors for the effective establishment of an adaptive e-BCM.
