Business continuity consultancy

Many organisations are compelled to implement business continuity plans through regulation, others are guided to do this as good practice and most directors these days see planning to deal with disasters as basic risk management.

But how best to build these plans and, when they are in place, how to test their effectiveness are still difficult questions to answer.

Fortress can help.

We often start the process with a State of Readiness Workshop to understand your current ability to deal with a disastrous event and make recommendations on improvements.

Business Impact Analysis

Fortress will work with your business to review all business functions by location to understand the various impacts on the overall business over periods of time.

The industry standard impacts that will be reviewed include financial, legal or regulatory requirements, internal impacts (such as recovery of IT), and lastly external impacts.

This analysis will identify and qualify exactly what functions need to be recovered, maximum recovery timescales and all of the supporting resources required.

Recovery Strategy Solution

Knowing your recovery requirements and timescales Fortress will review all viable options for the recovery of your critical business functions.

Internal and external options are researched to establish the most efficient and effective recovery resources available. These will include working from home and the use of alternate offices and third party recovery sites and services.

These will be built into a Recovery Strategy, the foundation of a Recovery Plan.

Recovery Plans

Your recovery plan is the documentation of the processes of an efficient and effective recovery. These detailed plans are built around your Recovery Strategy.

They do not need to be as complicated as you might imagine, in fact the simpler the better. Fortress will work with you to deliver a concise and customised plan of action and explain the best way of ensuring that your plan is maintained.

Recovery Testing

Your recovery process must be testable and repeatable and it is essential that your Recovery Plan is regularly checked and proven to work.

Fortress will ensure that all aspects of the recovery are included as part of the testing. All relevant staff should participate in the testing or attend training to ensure that they know and understand what to do.
