Business Continuity Management

A Business Continuity Management Plan is an important management tool designed to improve crisis management and increase your resilience to a range of plausible disruption scenarios.

With frequent severe weather events, increasing reliance on information technology to do business and supplier dependencies, it’s no longer a question of “should we bother to put some business continuity plans and resources in place?” – It’s now a question of “How far should we go?” 

  • How long could your business survive in the event of a prolonged disruption to critical services?
  • Will your customers, regulators and other stakeholders tolerate a disruption to service delivery? 
  • How long can you protect your reputation and market share before your competitors capitalise on your misfortune and threaten your long term survival? 

The uncomfortable truth is that organisations will never be able to foresee or plan for every scenario.  Therefore, it is important to build and embed business resilience throughout the organisation. Only by taking a proactive approach to risk, managing issues effectively and preparing for reactive crisis response can organisations be sure that the business is agile, adaptive and able to respond to immediate threats, no matter how they arise.

Whilst organisations cannot control the likelihood and impact of major disruption events like floods, fires, pandemics, power failures and a host of other IT and business related risks, they can control their preparedness and timeliness of their response. InConsult has a suite of services designed to make your organisation more robust to disruptions.
