Two thirds of today's companies do not have the processes to ensure the continuity of their business in the event of a disaster. Business Continuity Management (BCM) is now a 'must', required by the business environment, as well as by industry regulations.
However, many approaches to BCM fail because they only protect technological resources without understanding their role in supporting the organisation's critical business functions. Our BCM approach goes much further and also takes into account a client's business processes before making any recommendations on what resources are needed to ensure operations continuity. We have developed a framework that offers a unique combination of business and technological aspects, using a risk-based, modular and long-term sustainable approach.
Deloitte can assist clients either by evaluating existing processes and plans to provide pragmatic recommendations for improvement, or by helping to build new BCM processes and plans with the client. In both scenarios, our approach leads to cost-effective decisions that safeguard the future and long-term continuity of the client's business.
