|Business Continuity Planning
Many serious emergencies have proven that organizations without a sound Business Continuity Plan have a better than 50% chance of folding within two years of the event. We help your staff create a BCP based on the findings of the HIRA and the Corporate Risk Profile.
Especially important is the development of Emergency Procedures: the tactics to implement the strategies identified in your Plan. Subjects covered include Key Personnel and their back-ups, where you will work when your regular workplace becomes a smoking hole, the priorities of what MUST be done, what SHOULD be done if at all possible, and what work can be deferred or dropped in an emergency situation. Better to identify these ahead of time than when everyone's emotions are overwrought.
Also covered are such things as how to communicate with staff during telecommunications outages, what sequence your various IT applications should be re-started in, what are your Critical Resources, and many other subjects such as your Management Structure to keep the organization functioning while senior staff are tied up dealing with the emergency.
