Today’s business landscape is dynamic and unpredictable. You rarely have warning of incoming incidents and while you might get some lead time for your response process, things often go awry. That’s simply the nature of emergencies – they unfold in abrupt, unexpected ways. This is why comprehensive Business Continuity Management (BCM) is so important and advantageous. It can effectively save your business – especially when it’s aligned to an internationally recognised BCM standard like ISO 22301.
The complexity and level of integration across today’s hybrid IT environments means developing comprehensive business continuity management (BCM) is challenging for most businesses. With so many critical systems operating with an interconnected network, one blind spot could mean the downfall of your organisation.
Luckily, we help organisations cultivate and maintain business continuity in a holistic manner. Our experienced security consultants draw from international business continuity standard ISO 22301, working with your team to plan and implement a documented management system and enabling you to better respond to and recover from disruptive incidents.
Ultimately, it ensures all elements of a business are working together to uphold normal operations in the event of a disruption. However, aligning your organisation’s BCMS to this standard might require impractical levels of effort, time and skill.
Our qualified team of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) consultants will significantly alleviate the burden involved in this process. We help you cultivate and maintain effective, ISO 22301 compliant business continuity through Business Impact Analyses (BIA), Risk Assessments, and Business Continuity Plan (BCP) development.
When delivering a business continuity management (BCM) framework, we follow the ISO 22301 business continuity standard, taking the following elements into account:
Business Continuity Management must be supported from the top-down. This ensures that your Business Continuity Plan is actively supported and sets the strategic direction for BCM. We work closely with your management teams to identify and document your Business Continuity (BC) context, and ensue that your goals and expectations are well-communicated.
A Business Impact Analysis (BIA) is a crucial preliminary stage of overall BCM. It identifies the potential impact of a sudden loss of business functions and helps you determine which of your organisation’s processes are most important and/or vulnerable.
Ultimately, we assess the criticality of business activities and associated resource requirements, ensuring operational resilience and continuity of operations during and after a business disruption. BIAs include:
