Welcome to the iSMTA and our Modern Business Continuity Management course at Level 5, which is certified by Industry Qualifications (IQ) who are approved by qualification regulators in the UK.
Business Continuity Management has been a necessary part of business since the early 1980’s in one form or another. The need to protect the organisation, or business, its brand reputation, its assets, its workforce, its profits and its trade secrets has been a daily activity, the value of which is often only recognised when something goes wrong. Every organisation, or business, is likely to be protected by the use of Business Continuity Management measures, with most proactive business continuity measures being so normal that they are a simple part of our everyday lives. The fifth wheel in the car, solar chargers, IT back-up sites, are just such examples.
Another feature of Business Continuity Management is that it needs to be ever-changing, to adapt to changing conditions, to changing business needs and to our ever-changing world. Business Continuity must continue to modernise to maintain its value and effectiveness. Those employed to advise on Business Continuity Management need to keep modern too. Having qualified through this programme is an excellent way to be a Modern Business Continuity Management Professional and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
