Companies today face a growing threat landscape. The frequency and severity of weather-related events seems to be increasing. The reliance on a complex network of technology and supply chains is expanding. Terrorism, personal attacks and cyber-attack are forecasted to increase at an alarming rate. We can help you plan, prepare, and respond to the events that can threaten your business continuity.
The trends leave businesses susceptible to a variety of existing and emerging risks. Managing these risks by developing a business continuity strategy is key to the survival of any organisation.
Business continuity planning is one of the most critical components of any recovery strategy. Unfortunately, not every company develops a continuity plan. To have no contingency plans is simply a dereliction of duties.
The recent changes in data protection law require all companies based in Europe to have continuity plans.
Regulatory changes in the insurance industry require all organisations to state their recovery plans for insured risks.
"Business Continuity Planning should be regarded as a priority for any business and is equally critical for small and medium sized companies as it is for large organisations."

Managing Tasks in a Crisis
Research shows people don't react as well as they think they will in a crisis situation.
In a crisis situation things don’t go to plan because crises don’t follow your plans. Every crisis is unique. From the start people are under pressure, feel compelled to act quickly and often don’t have the information they need to hand.
Crises Control offers incident owners and easy and powerful way to create, manage distribute contingency plans to the responder groups(s). These plans can be a document created by our incident plan builder or they could be a series of automated incident management in a process. Each task is assigned to responder group(s) and electronically distributed to the App when the incident is started for optimal recovery.
Create and automate incident task
Whereas the incident plan builder produces a contingency plan document, the automated incident management is better suited to incidents that require specific tasks executed in a process automatically. The system will automatically distribute the task to assigned group(s), track the status and response activity until complete.
For example incident recovery plan for "Loss of Internet" could contain several tasks organised in an optimum process.
A task could contain a list of things to check assigned to the IT department responders. Another task could be to consider, PR, legal and insurance issues assigned to the Directors. These tasks are just some examples of the tasks in the process for optimal recovery.
