Disaster Recover and Business Continuity Planning – organizations exist to provide products and services to their customers as well as benefit to their numerous stakeholders. Disruptions in the flow of those products and services, for any reason, can have a profound impact on the lives of stakeholders and the ultimate success of a business. The more critical the dependency on the product or service provided, the greater the risk to the customer and also to the business. In order to minimize the impact of disaster events and disruptions to normal business operations, businesses need to develop disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Grant Rothbard Consultants can conduct a Business Impact Assessment and help you craft a Business Continuity Plan to address key risks and produce a more robust process infrastructure more resilient to disaster events. It is the "continuity by design" approach taken by Grant Rothbard the builds continuity into the operational processes so that facilitating fail-over processes and continuity strategies is focused, effective and lean. By building continuity capabilities and testing functionality into the management systems design, the client is left with not only a comprehensive business continuity process infrastructure but also a more robust management system that addresses all compliance and quality assurance requirements.
