Most large corporations have full-time staff and allocated resources for Business Continuity Planning (BCP), Disaster Recovery (DR) and Crisis and Incident Management (C/IM); however the majority of small and medium-sized businesses have little internal expertise and support.
A lack of planning and preparedness can easily result in significant losses for your business when impacted by large scale and even smaller disasters and disruptions. For both large and small businesses, having a plan in place can be the difference in bouncing back or permanently closing your doors.
BOLDplanning has several approaches to business continuity that are designed to fit your company’s specific needs.
We work equally well with large businesses spread across multiple locations and small businesses with minimal staff and a single facility. We monitor several organization “standards” and match our planning process to these industry best practices.
The guidance and requirements from the following organizations are incorporated into our BOLDplanning methodology and software.
- Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII)
- Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)
- FEMA Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep)
- FEMA Continuity of Operations Division
- ISO 22301:2012 for Business Continuity Management Systems
Our process facilitates overarching plan development by working directly with executive management and departmental leads from risk, security, information technology, facility management, human resources, legal as well as other operational staff. Our experience is wide-ranging and our process has been proven in a number of diverse industry sectors.
