The right business continuity plan can be the difference between business survival and failure.
While many companies have a business continuity plan in place, these are frequently developed to meet a specific threat or need. All too often these plans are focused on recovering the infrastructure of an organisation and fail to address the wider business processes which are critical to a company’s operations.
In the global economy, companies’ supply chains have become longer and more complex, increasing the risk of business interruption. Meanwhile the increasing frequency of natural catastrophes and even terrorist attacks presents new threats.
What can you do to manage this risk more effectively?
Companies need to understand the critical processes that are at the heart of their business. We can work with you to put in place a recovery plan that reflects the current needs of the business.
We will conduct a detailed assessment and review of your current plans to ensure they meet the changing demands of the business and best practice standards
We will test business continuity plans regularly, devising programmes of tests or one off events to ensure that the company gets its strategic response and communications right in the event of a crisis. A training programme for staff should also be developed.
We can offer expert advice on key areas such as developing and rehearsing crisis management plans and an analysis of a company’s supply chain.
