Business Continuity

How quickly can you get your business back up and running after a service disruption? The future of your organization could depend on the answer.  We will create a plan that exceeds international standards in business continuity to support your critical service delivery and business operations.

Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment (HIRA)

The foundation of any business continuity program or plan is found in the HIRA.  Once the natural and human-caused hazards are identified, each one should be assessed against your business operations for risk and vulnerability.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA)

The Sandhurst BIA Tool is customized to incorporate all of your services and support to assess impacts to; Workforce, Workplace, Supply Chain and Information Technology.  The Sandhurst methodology has been successfully used in Emergency Management & Business Continuity Programs for companies sized from 150 – 15,000 employees and up to 500 lines of business.

Business Continuity Plans & Exercises

After completing the HIRA and BIA, we can then prepare contingency plans for implementation during business interruption. Once you have a Business Continuity Plan, we will help you review it, distribute it and most importantly, test it to ensure it works.

Program Assessment & Audit

A key component to an effective program is ensuring it is complete, remains current and is aligned to industry standards and best practices.  We can conduct a program assessment or formal audit by our Certified Internal Audit Experts to provide a review of your existing emergency management, business continuity and/or IT disaster recovery program.
