Life has a way of throwing things up that can have an impact on our everyday lives, and for businesses, these types of incidents can, unfortunately, have profound implications:
– 80% of businesses that encounter a major incident close within 18 months.
– 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to shut down within two years.
A ‘Business Continuity Program’ clearly demonstrates to employees, clients, suppliers, and other stakeholders that their interests are being looked after; it can also protect less tangible assets such as brand, reputation and client confidence.
A BCP is necessary when attempting to identify the impact of potential losses; it also helps to formulate and implement viable recovery strategies and to develop recovery plans. In an emergency, incident, or crisis, it helps maintain continuity and deliver a comprehensive training, testing and maintenance program.
Our business continuity team at Alliance will work with your organisation to establish a robust framework and plan that your business can then use to demonstrate how it will be delivered, key roles and responsibilities and how business continuity management will be governed and reported upon.
Successful testing and review of the plan also means that it will remain operational in the future.
