Business Continuity and Emergency Management
Business Continuity (BC) is the ability of the organization to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive incident. Within CPCC, Business Continuity involves a managed process which identifies potential threats to the organization and the impacts to business operations those threats might cause. This process assists CPCC with ensuring the capability of an effective response that safeguards the interests of the college.
