Continuity and Recovery Consulting Services
Business impact analysis, to catalog your critical assets and processes
Instec can help you complete a BIA across a globally distributed enterprise using our proven methodology assisted with on-site workshops. BIA is actually a business process mapping initiative. The BIA will enable you to understand your business processes, dependencies, and recovery/resiliency requirements.
Risk assessments, to identify and measure potential disruptions
Instec will help you in identifying, analyzing, and evaluating the risks to your business in a structured manner using an established risk framework and risk taxonomy. We will help you in quantifying the probability and the impact of the risk so you can prioritize which risks to mitigate and which you will accept.
Strategy and plan development, to align efforts with objectives
Once you understand your business requirements, dependencies, and most probable, high-impact risks through the BIA and RA, you have to develop mitigating strategies and actionable plans should the risks transpire. Instec will help you in developing strategies and document plans that encompass people, processes, and technology solutions. Strategy also encompasses how you will organize and govern your BC management program across the enterprise on an ongoing basis.
Testing, to provide assurance your plan will function
Without testing your plans are useless. Testing helps you validate your capabilities and ensure that everyone is comfortable with their roles and responsibilities. Instec will help you in creating your overall test strategy. We can develop test methodologies, define test objectives and scenarios, schedule tests, manage the execution of tests, and debrief after the test. This includes tests such as walkthroughs, tabletop exercises, simulations, and actual failovers.
Maintenance and ongoing support, to account for changes in the business and risk profile
BC planning is not a one-time event, it’s an ongoing program. You will need to regularly update BIAs and risk assessments, continuously update plans, and test several times a year. Instec will provide knowledge and tool transfer during the engagement and offer continuing support services in the form of co-sourcing or full outsourcing.
