IT Service Continuity Management

The purpose of the IT service continuity management process is to support the overall Business Continuity Management (BCM) process by ensuring that the IT service provider can always provide minimum agreed business continuity related service levels. To achieve this outcome, business and IT identify and manage the risks.

  • Ensure that the continuity plans are maintained in line with the changing business impacts and requirements 
  • Conduct regular risk assessment and management exercises 
  • Provide guidance to other areas of business regarding IT service continuity 
  • Ensure that appropriate continuity mechanisms are put in place 
  • Ensure the IT changes are assessed on their impact of service continuity 
  • Negotiate and agree contracts with suppliers for the provision of the necessary recovery capacity
