For this individual assignment you should write a response in essay format to one of the following tasks: 1. The concept of ‘resilience’ is commonly used to describe organisations and their crisis and business continuity management. Explain what is meant by organisational resilience and evaluate whether resilience can help to improve the ability to prevent and recover from acute crises. 2. Business Continuity Management (BCM) can be viewed as a form of strategic risk management. Discuss the difficulties with prediction and probability in relation to identifying the serious threats that an organisation might face in the future? 3. Many business continuity practitioners are currently re-evaluating their plans for pandemic threats as a result of the rise in Ebola virus cases. Making specific reference to previous instances of pandemic threats, evaluate whether this re-evaluation is necessary. Whichever task you choose to answer, you should incorporate research from peer reviewed journals along with practical illustrations. All sources used in your essay should be correctly cited within the essay and a full reference list follow your essay.
