Raising Business Continuity Awareness

Posted by John Robinson on July 29, 2015

Using business continuity software, training and strategy to create value

Few organisations have a dedicated business continuity resource, and even those that do can find themselves underprepared for emergencies when they arise. When reality kicks in and serious events place an organisation in the public spotlight, knowing how to respond can make an immense difference, potentially preserving or damaging a reputation that has taken years to build. With business continuity training, an organisation can build risk resilience and capability without distracting or disrupting normal activities.  This case study explains how our business continuity consultancy helped Zurich Global UK, a corporate risk management and financing provider, achieve this.

Gaining ISO 22301 Business Continuity Accreditation

Posted by John Robinson on July 29, 2015

How INONI helped our client gain the ISO 22301 Business Continuity accreditation.

Our client provides technology, Call Centre and other outsourced services to a large metropolitan City Council and many other public and private sector organizations, including highly visible and sensitive Government authorized services.  Many demand high levels of security and integrity, often dealing with highly personal, sensitive and time-critical information.  Recognizing this, in 2007, our client decided to embark on a business continuity management (BCM) programme to ensure its services could never suffer unacceptable disruption from any cause.  In addition to everyday risks, the scenarios covered include the real and potentially catastrophic impacts arising from ‘standard’ insurable hazards such as fire and flood, and also from less obvious 21st century threats such as information loss or corruption, critical utility failure and terrorism.
