Why are auditors the best friends of BCM?

Have you been assigned the responsibility for the company’s Business Continuity Plan (BCP)?

Are you unsure about the thoroughness of your current BCP?

Have you "inherited" your BCP from someone else? 

It is always a good idea to assess the current state of the BCM Program in your organization first. By knowing exactly what you've "inherited", you'll be able to identify which aspects have been addressed adequately, which need improvement, and at the same time avoid blame for other people's mistakes.

Professionally performed BCM audit based on the industry best practices can be exactly the tool needed for such benchmarking. Business Continuity audit can help you identify a baseline and ensure that you have the right foundation to build on. Don’t let your plan fail because someone else failed to plan.

What about your supply chain partners?

Are they concerned about your ability to carry on operations in spite of any interruptions?

If your business is dependent on others to deliver key services or products, your plan may be at risk.  Our Business Continuity Audit can help you identify issues with your supply chain, and help you fix it.
