Business Continuity and Resilience

Ensure your organisation’s preparedness under pressure for resumption, adaptation and advancement.

Companies need to stay ahead of risks by understanding priorities, planning for disruptions, employing good business practices and exercising forethought to increase their ability to course-correct quickly when things go wrong.

Rapid digital change and growing cyber concerns have increased the risk of extreme but plausible events which may impact your organisation’s important business services. By building on traditional business continuity management (BCM) practices, your organisation can leverage operational resilience practices to help understand, prevent and recover in these instances.

BCM is traditionally composed of three distinct, though interrelated, disciplines. These are Crisis Management and Communications, IT Disaster Recovery (ITDR), and Business Process Resumption. Having a continuity plan across these disciplines allows organisations to respond to risks that not only impact business operations but also provides the ability to protect their people and brand, earn revenue, maintain relevance and remain compliant with regulations. Companies need to stay ahead of these risks by understanding priorities, planning for disruptions, employing good business practices, and exercising forethought to increase their ability to course-correct quickly when things go wrong.
