Business Continuity Management (BCM)

Features and Uniqueness
  • Business continuity management (BCM) is a strategy of a company or a public organization to continue critical operations or recover them early even when they suffer serious damage from disasters, major accidents, terrorism, infectious diseases and so on. The plans for BCM is called BCPs. Japanese government and industry organizations actively promote introduction and improvement of BCM. My laboratory have studied how to spread and improve BCM. I participate in development of governmental guidelines for BCM. I also operate a BCM study group consist of companies, governmental organizations and research institutes in Sendai City.
Practical Application

I would be able to give an advice to companies or organizations which are going to introduce or improve their BCM and BCP at the request of them. In addition, collaboration with corporate groups can be assumed to promote or improve BCM practically.
