What indicators and what documentation need to be implemented ?
On the basis of proven methodologies integrating the requirements of the ISO 22301 standard, our approach helps you to define a complete business continuity strategy, integrating analysis of your major risks, definition of acceptable service levels and Business Impact Analysis (BIA), actions to be implemented in case of incidents and the mechanisms for operational maintenance of the plan.
Business continuity is part of a global effort towards resilience, integrating risk and crisis management, among other things. Basing itself on its expertise across all the domains involved in risk and crisis prevention, IREMOS brings you the guarantee of implementing a coherent and rational approach within your organisation.
Having performance indicators for the implemented procedures is necessary for the continuous improvement of your mechanisms: we will advise you in the definition and use of adequate steering tools, for the preparation of documentation including the identification of managers and means for the implementation, as well as change management.
Verifying that your business continuity procedures and mechanisms are both known, understood and applicable in a real-life situation is an integral part of the deployment of your policy. IREMOS accompanies you in the performance of crisis exercises allowing to validate or improve the operability and appropriateness of your mechanisms.
