Practical Business Continuity Management

  • Your clients expect timely delivery of products or services. If there is a significant delay, customers may cancel orders or worse, they may go to your competitors.

  • Major customers ask their vendors about business continuity or disaster recovery plans. They want you to ensure that their supply chain is uninterruptible. If you fail to implement a BC/DR program, you risk losing business to competitors who can demonstrate they have a better plan.

  • Transferring your risks to insurance is only a partial solution. It does not generally cover all losses and it will not replace lost customers.

  • Many disasters, natural or man-made, may overwhelm your resources and even the largest government agencies and they may not be able to reach every facility in time. Are you prepared to recover on your own?

  • News travels fast and perceptions often differ from reality. Businesses need to reach out to customers and other stakeholders quickly during business interruptions to keep them informed and to set expectations.

  • Establishing, updating, auditing and refining existing continuity plans and other related disciplines.
  • BCP-DRP, Crisis, Disaster, Emergency and Communication Tests, Exercises and Drills.
  • Establishing BCP and Emergency Core Teams including full trainings and consulting services.
