IT Disaster Recovery Plan Development
Planning for disaster and having appropriate measures in place to minimise downtime to your business is paramount in today's environment. The development of a Disaster Recovery plan is the logical next step following a Continuity Preparedness exercise. We will work with you to provide an effective, fit-for-purpose, predefined and documented framework and process to enable the Disaster Recovery of the organisation's Information Technology portfolio.
This DR plan can fit with your existing infrastructure, or be the beginning of a roadmap for extending and potentially outsourcing your production and/or DR facilities to a fully-managed Data Centre site.
Business Impact Analysis
Understanding your business is about the analysis of the operational aspects of an organisation; both public and private sector, and provides the foundation upon which all Business Continuity Management (BCM) is based. The purpose of a Business Impact Analysis is to:
Identify an organisation's Mission Critical Activities (MCA) their dependencies and single points of failure
Identify the impact and effect of the loss, interruption or disruption of an organisation's MCA
Inform and enable the setting of an organisation's risk appetite
Inform and enable the options for developing the resilience of the organisation's business operations
Inform and enable the setting of an organisations business value based BCM strategy and solutions
Inform and enable an organisation to prioritise its recovery profile for MCA and their dependencies (minimum required level at which MCA can viably operate by setting clear Recovery time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) for the business continuity of each MCA and dependency)
Provide a BCM recovery resource profile that identifies the minimum level resources necessary for an organisation to achieve the prioritised recovery profile of its MCA and their dependencies.
Business Continuity Management (BCM) Strategy Development
The purpose of a Business Continuity Management Strategy is to provide a clearly defined and documented policy, framework and operational direction to ensure the resilience and continuance of an organisation's Mission Critical Activities, their dependencies and single points of failure. This service is offered at an organisational level, at a process level (whereby the resultant BCM capability can be developed for one or a number of organisational or industry systemic Mission Critical Activities), and at a resource level. BCM services extend to BCM audits, exercising an organisation's BCM plan, and ongoing maintenance of the BCM plan.
Crisis Management Plan Development
The purpose of Crisis Management Plan (CMP) is to provide an effective, fit-for-purpose predefined and documented framework and process to enable an organisation to manage effectively a crisis event whether of a physical e.g. site or non-physical e.g. reputation/brand or security e.g. burglary nature.
Ability IT can assist you in defining your formal Business Continuity Management (BCM) Policy. The purpose of this is to provide a clearly defined, documented mandatory course of action to be implemented by the organisation in respect of Business Continuity Management (including Crisis Management).
