Business Continuity Planning, Training, and Exercise Solutions

In this day and age the list of events that could disrupt your business seems endless: employee illness, active shooters, natural disasters, IT failure/cyber attacks, even a terrorist attack. The lessons of the World Trade Center bombing, Oklahoma City bombing and the September 11th terrorist attacks demonstrate the importance of being prepared. When you also consider the number of declared major disasters nearly doubled in the 1990's compared to the previous decade, preparedness becomes even more critical. Though each situation is unique, any organization can be better prepared if it plans carefully, puts emergency procedures in place, and practices for emergencies of all kinds. 

Will you be able to maintain your critical operations if a disaster strikes? Will you be one of the statistics or can your business make it through a disaster? The answers all depend on the planning you do today, before a disaster. Good Business Continuity plans will get and keep your company up and running in the aftermath of an event.

Pre-Emergency Planning, LLC has worked extensively in the private sector to lead and support the development, review and updates of Business Continuity Plans (BCP) for a wide variety of clients from insurance providers to information technology companies. We have developed business information technology and cyber continuity plans, information technology incident response plans and information technology disaster recovery plans. Additionally, we have designed, facilitated and evaluated dozens of private sector discussion and operational based exercises to increase the understanding of roles and responsibilities while validating emergency operations, response and continuity plans. 

Are You Protected?
With no Business Continuity Plan in place, your chances of recovering from a major business disruption decrease dramatically. Research and experience show that businesses who have a comprehensive plan before disaster strikes retain more assets and resume full functionality more quickly. Does your plan cover the major hazards and vulnerabilities your company faces, including cyber security? Additionally, do you have an emergency response or operation plan that outlines the command, coordination and control during a critical incident? 

What Can I Do?
A strategic approach to preparing for, responding to and recovering from small and lager scale emergencies is crucial to ensure continuity of operations within your business. Developing a comprehensive emergency response/operations plan is essential, along with documenting how you will maintain critical functions and services during a critical incident and into the recovery process.

From initial project kick off to testing your plans, we will provide full project management to ensure your plans can perform during a threat of service disruption.  We have written and developed Emergency Operations, Response and Continuity plans for a variety of different private sector partners including cyber security planning.
