Business Continuity Planning
Can your business survive a crisis?
We are in the business of considering all elements of risk on behalf of our clients and ensuring that they have considered every aspect of protecting their businesses – including an essential review of any plans for business continuity.
There are no reliable statistics available to highlight the failure rate of businesses that do not have a business continuity plan, however we do know that the number and complexity of the risks that businesses face are constantly evolving and so can make the management of those risks a challenging process.
Putting it simply, when your business experiences a sudden, unplanned evert;
- Your staff may be unable or not know how to react
- The procedures, systems and rules required for to respond may not be available
- The resources you rely on may be lost or denied to you
What is Business Continuity Planning?
Business continuity planning is a process that identifies potential impacts of risks that threaten an organisation, and provides a framework for building resilience and the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interest of the business, its key stakeholders, reputation and brand.
Having a robust and future proof plan demonstrates confidence to staff, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. It means you are in better control of the recovery timeframe rather than being forced into extreme and potentially costly measures to keep your doors open for business.
Insurers are also becoming more insistent on businesses being able to demonstrate that a measured business continuity plan is in place.
