Organizational Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is one of the most critical components of any recovery strategy. Unfortunately, not every organization develops a BCP, which increases risks and reduces operational readiness.

A BCP is very important, and will ensure your organization minimizes costs and reduces service delivery downtime. A solid BCP could actually mean the difference between whether your business fully recovers, or is one of many that simply cannot recoup the losses and goes under. Our specialists can help your organization with a simplified and optimal approach in developing comprehensive and effective BCP.

  • BCP development
  • BCP assessments and gap analysis
  • BCP testing and exercising
  • BCP key stakeholders training

We specialize in IT Disaster Recovery Planning (IT DRP) that leverages findings from Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and aligns with the long-term strategic goals and the operational readiness requirements of your organization.

Why is IT DRP important for your organization? It enables organizations to protect themselves from, and to minimize the disruption caused by various natural disasters and man-made outages. IT DRP focuses on recovery of business critical IT systems that have failed either due to component failure, data centre failure, or some other incident or disaster. The goal of IT DRP is to implement a disaster prevention program to rapidly restore IT operational capability, thus minimizing the disruption of critical business applications.

  • IT DRP development
  • IT DRP assessments and gap analysis
  • IT DRP testing and exercises
  • IT DRP options and cost analysis

Once the Business Continuity Management (BCM) Program components including the BCM Governance and Policy, Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and IT Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) are developed and implemented, they will need to be operationalized and continuously updated, tested and enhanced. This typically means that internal staff will need to be allocated to support the BCM program activities within the organization, and most of the time, this will be in addition to their regular job activities.

StratoGrid Advisory offers the BCM as a Service (BCMaaS) capability, which will assist your organization with the operational aspects of the BCM Program. We will implement a regular BCM Program review cycle with your team, update the BCM Program components and ensure that all changes are captured, implemented and communicated.

  • Governance, policy and guideline updates
  • Business Impact Analysis and All Hazards Risk Assessment refresh
  • BCP and IT DRP updates
  • Training and awareness material

As a part of the BCMaaS, we offer access to the BCM Program software platform, designed to enhance and simplify all operational aspects of your organization’s BCM Program (optional component). This software platform enables your organization with the following capabilities:

  • BCM Program management dashboards
  • Securely store your organization’s BCM Program artifacts in the cloud (BCP, IT DRP, etc.)
  • Operationalize BCP program changes
  • Assist with BCM program components development (Business Impact Analysis, BCP, Risk Assessment)
  • Crisis/Emergency Management
  • Supplier/Third Party/Vendor Risk Management
