Our approach takes a more expansive and integrated strategy, founded upon an enhanced understanding of risks, business processes and dependencies. Business Continuity Planning is a requisite for sound business Risk Management.
Recent world events have challenged us to prepare to manage previously unthinkable situations that may threaten an organization’s future. This new challenge goes beyond the mere emergency response plan or disaster management activities that we previously employed. Organizations now must engage in a comprehensive process best described generically as Business Continuity. It is no longer enough to draft a response plan that anticipates naturally, accidentally, or intentionally caused disaster or emergency scenarios.
Today’s threats require the creation of an on-going, interactive process that serves to assure the continuation of an organization’s core activities before, during, and most importantly, after a major crisis event.
An integrated connection – Risk Management & Business Continuity Management
- Corporate Governance indicates that “sound risk management and internal control frameworks, tailored to the specific circumstances of the company, should be part of the daily operational activities of a company and should not be viewed independently of normal business activities.”
- While Risk Management focuses on every conceivable type of risk that may be found in an organisation; Business Continuity Management focuses upon such aspects that may impact and disrupt the delivery of key products and services.
