SS540:2008 is a Singapore Standard for Business Continuity Management (BCM) that is being embraced by both the international and local businesses operating within Singapore. With the support of a thirty million dollar grant from the government for the implementation of BCM within their organization, the initiative to implement BCM is now given a tremendous boost by the government. This paper starts with a history of the standard implementation, an introduction to the concept of BCM and BC and summing up with the framework within the SS540:2008 standard. The BCM framework within the SS540:2008 is highly rigorous as it contains the 6 major BCM areas and also the four major BCM components. The BCM framework matrix provides a coverage which makes the SS540:2008 a comprehensive BCM standard. An overview of the each BCM area cross referencing to its major component is elaborated in detail.
