To ensure that strategies and plans are in place to counteract interruptions to business activities and to protect critical business processes from the effects of major failures of information systems or disasters and to ensure their timely resumption, organizations need to develop an organisation-wide business continuity strategy and programme, which is supported by a resilient technical infrastructure and an effective crisis management capability. Futthermore need to develop, maintain and regularly test business continuity plans and arrangements (sometimes referred to as disaster recovery plans) for critical business processes and applications throughout the organisation.
Our Business Continuity Planning Services aim to provide you a set of documented actions to perform in the event of a disaster or emergency affecting your organization's business applications and technical infrastructure, enabling critical business processes to be resumed within critical timescales.
Each business continuity plan is developed in conjunction with business representatives and is based on a set of scenarios of possible disasters. The business continuity plan may even include arrangements for resuming critical business processes by using alternative facilities (e.g., via reciprocal arrangements with another organisation or a contract with a specialist provider of business continuity arrangements).
