Business Continuity And Resilience
It’s about keeping calm and carrying on-no matter what!
Today you might be the owner of a multi-billion dollar company and there might be thousands of employees and customers who rely on your company. But, ever thought what would happen if the next day you wake up to a natural disaster or a major data breach? The impact of such disruptions on your business will be more than you can imagine. You should not lose hope, you will have to rise and spring back to shape, for the sake of your company and employees.
This may not sound easy, but businesses cannot afford to stay away from the market for a longer duration, in today’s ultra-competitive business environment.
Why business continuity?
Contemporary scenarios have highlighted the point that businesses no matter how robust in their own domains share vulnerabilities in one form or the other. Consider the following risk scenarios and determine how they can affect the financial health of your company and its brand image in the market:
- Natural and Infrastructural disasters and failures
- Technological failures
- Loss of critical information
- Denial-of-service attacks
- Workforce vulnerabilities e.g. pandemic, strikes, natural disasters
- Energy loss and failures
- Contractual 3rd party failures
- Acts of Terrorism
These have made the requirement of a comprehensive BCM Plan extremely important for the wellbeing of any company. Business Continuity Management Services help you overcome major disruption such as above. BCM is a framework for identifying a company’s risk of exposure to threats, both internal and external. It creates systems of prevention and recovery to tackle potential threats to a firm
The PDCA(plan–do–check–adjust) model is the fundamental building block of a business continuity management system. The PDCA process makes sure that a BC system and associated activities are reviewed and improved, on a regular basis. PDCA is all about planning the required changes (plan), making the changes (do), checking whether the changes have the desired effect (check) and institutionalizing the changes (act).
