If your business has ever been impacted by an unforeseen event or unable to respond effectively to a major disaster, then you know — how you deal with an outage, recover from it, and prevent it from occurring again are crucial factors for your organization. If your business depends on system uptime and availability to serve clients and drive sales, then running a daily backup might not be enough.
Many organizations need redundant internet connections and automated failover solutions should an outage occur within their primary systems or network. Whether regulation requires a business continuity plan or your customers are asking about it, having a plan and the associated technology in place is a responsible business decision that can significantly help your bottom line and your reputation in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Reduce Operational Risks
It’s likely that your organization actively manages your product, market and financial risks, but what about operational risks? How do your employees operate? What processes and procedures are priority? And what would happen if your network went down?
Many mid-sized to large businesses do not have the expertise within their company to assess operational risk and create adequate business continuity or disaster recovery plans for their organizations. And those who do often struggle to keep them up-to-date and regularly test their plans. Aureon Consulting offers a suite of business resilience solutions, including risk assessments, business impact analysis, business continuity development, disaster recovery, and incident response plans. From developing risk governance programs and life cycles to employee awareness and training, our skilled and knowledgeable consultants will work with you to develop the solution that’s right for your organization.
Business Continuity Plans
Whether you need to establish or update your business continuity plan, Aureon consultants will help get your business continuity plan in shape. We will review your business’s risk assessment and business impact analysis (BIA), or conduct them if they’re outdated or have never been completed. This information reveals risks that have been identified as “highly likely,” and will be integral to the development of your business continuity plan.
Another important component involves weighing dependencies and requirements between your company’s teams, critical vendors, and clients. Aureon consultants will guide your team through all the necessary steps of building a thorough business continuity plan.
Risk Management Programs
A successful risk management program has executive support, governance, and is properly managed. Aureon consultants will work to ensure all components are in place for your risk management program. We will help identify key personnel who should contribute to the program success, establish the governance required, and set the program structure to ensure the most benefit is derived from the risk management program.
