Business Continuity and Resilience

Business Continuity and Resilience planning for your organisation is identifying any potential risks that may interfere with delivery of products or services and putting in place plans to mitigate interruptions. This means business can resume quickly and with as little disruption as possible.

Is your organisation resilient?

Organisations can be disrupted in many ways.  Some examples are a digger cutting through a computer cable, a rise in the water table, fire, pandemic, rapid downturn in the value of the GBP, the loss of a key employee or reputational scandal.  Business Resilience is achieved by planning ahead for such incidents and putting effective arrangements in place. These processes are called Risk Management and Business Continuity Management.

Making an effective Business Continuity Plan (BCP) for your organisation can help get business back on track quickly ensuring that recovery time, loss of delivery and financial or other losses are kept to a minimum.
