Estimates suggest more than a quarter of UK companies do not adequately prepare for the impact of a disruptive incident. Nearly half of those that do haven’t exercised their plans in the last year.
For businesses to continue to operate when an incident happens, they must consider the impact of a disruption to their core services and the driving forces behind them, including information, technology, premises and a company’s most valued asset, its staff. Having a robust and regularly tested business continuity plan is critical.
We help our clients with Business Continuity Management (BCM) advice benchmarked against ISO 22301, the best practice standard. Using a structured six-step approach which helps firms really understand their business, their risks and then develop and implement BCM.
We also help develop exercises and rehearsals of Business Continuity Plans to identify and report on the key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics used to show improvement to ensure successful certification. We also offer ISO 22301 training services. Gemserv is the official ISO 22301 training provider for the British Quality Foundation.
Gemserv offers free, no-obligation business continuity consultation to highlight areas of concern, detail evidence required at certification and what is needed to establish a robust BCM plan that is compliant with ISO 22301.
