BCM Body of Knowledge (BCMBoK)
Introduction to BCM BOK
The "A Guide to the Business Continuity Management Body of Knowledge" (BCM BOK Guide) was first published by the BCM Institute as a white paper in 2009 in an attempt to document and standardize generally accepted BCM and DR definitions and practices.
The BCM Body of Knowledge or BCMBoK is an all-inclusive term that describes the sum of knowledge within the profession of business continuity management. Since it is usually not possible to put the full body of knowledge of even an discipline, such as business continuity or disaster recovery, into a single document, there is a need for a Guide to the BCM Body of Knowledge. This Guide will seek to identify and describe that subset of the body of knowledge that is generally accepted, even though BCM or DR professionals must be knowledgeable not only in BCM or DR, but also, of course, in other related disciplines.
This guide contains the 7 major body of knowledge needed for a BC or DR professionals. The section below is the table of content for BCM Institute's Business Continuity Management- Body of Knowledge. For example, BCMBoK 1: Project Management defines the project management definitions and knowledge about BCM. The rest of the BCMBok is self explanatory.
*Note: BCMBoK 0 is not part of the body of knowledge as it provides the fundamentals of BCM and DR.
