Managing Business Continuity

12/04/2010


Our world has changed. We live and work amid new and emerging threats. Recent events such as H1N1, the 2003 North American power outage, and extreme storms illustrate the significant impact events can have on organizations. As 2 out of 5 companies that experience a crisis do not survive, developing effective strategies to proactively identify and manage threats to your organization could be your best defense in an ever-changing world.

Developing a Business Continuity Management (BCM) program will allow your organization to face and survive any crisis by answering these key questions:

  • What are the potential risks to my organization (i.e., anything which will prevent your organization from achieving their business objectives)
  • What are the ways we can reduce risks before an event
  • How will we respond during an event
  • What are the recovery steps required after an event

The core objective of a BCM program is to ensure continuity and survival of your organization in the event of any interruption, transforming a “crisis into a competitive advantage. BCM allows you to:

  • Minimize financial losses
  • Protect personnel and assets
  • Protect and improve reputation and customer service
  • Ensure high quality and efficient processes
  • Maintain stakeholder obligations

MNP’s solutions enable your organization to prepare for, prevent, and effectively respond to events that may interrupt your business. For more information on how MNP can help build resiliency in your organization, please contact your local MNP consultant.
