Prepare and Protect your Organization

Business Continuity Management (BCM) helps you plan, implement and maintain a documented management system to prepare, respond and recover from disruptive incidents.

When delivering business continuity management, we follow the ISO 22301 (Business Continuity standard) using the following roadmap:
Business Continuity Governance – this sets the strategic direction allowing management to communicate goals and expectations Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment which includes things like:

  1. Establishing the context of the assessment defining the criteria and evaluating the potential impact of a disruptive incident.
  2. Taking into account legal requirements.
  3. Providing systematic analysis, prioritizing risk treatments.
  4. Defining the required output from the business impact analysis and risk assessment.
  5. Putting requirements in place to keep information up-to-date and confidential

Recovery Strategy – this focuses on critical business functions involved in the business impact analysis exercise where we establish maximum downtimes and recovery times.

A Business Continuity Plan provides:

  • Emergency notification and disaster declaration procedures.
  • Recovery team procedures.
  • Facilities and business restoration procedures.
  • BCP testing and maintenance cycles.
  • Appendices for master contact list; equipment inventories, connectivity schematics, etc.
  • Workshops to management and key business owners to ensure they understand the Business Continuity Plan.
