Business Continuity and Crisis Management

Today Dr. Gregory Shaw Co-Director of the Crisis, disaster & risk management of the George Washington University, Washington DC, taught us the difference between Business Continuity (BC) and Emergency Management (EM) , and I narrowed it down to: BC as being the proactive approach to responding to, recovering from and returning to the normal state of operations prior to an incident; versus EM as being the reactive approach to responding to an incident where plans have been made, but may have lacked the exercises needed to measure performance.

I will keep posting more on Business Crisis and continuity management throughout the semester. Hoping I can come up with a good practical Business Continuity Program for the Honduran Consulate in Washington DC.
