The Hope and Pray Method of Crisis and Business Continuity Management!
Has your organisation put in place all the steps to cope with and recover from a terrorist incident or major crisis , by testing and exercising your procedures , training staff, checking out those assumptions you have made? , If any of these have not been done , like it or not you have inadvertently chosen the “Hope and Pray” method , which means ; hoping a serious incident threatening the organisation’s ability to continue business will not happen and if it does praying your organisation can continue it’s business, survive and recover. I very much doubt that despite being optional you don’t take this approach with your household insurance!
We specialise in helping organisations develop robust, risk based and affordable solutions to cope with a range of risks from terrorist incidents to key customer failure, sudden loss of premises, IT failure, fire and flood.
We will carry out a free review of your risks and gaps, and can then work with you on a programme to remediate together with your in house teams help you with all these items including:
Facilitate desktop exercises
Training staff and senior management in how to deal with crisis
IT systems vulnerabilities to cyber-attack and hacking
Documenting and testing your IT disaster recovery and backups
Utilisation of new technology to reduce the risks
By preparing for the large incidents your organisation will be much better able to deal with and eliminate some of the smaller but still disruptive incidents and be more efficient as a result
The one thing harder than planning for a disaster is explaining why you didn’t .
