Business continuity & resilience

It is not just about success - It is about continued success

Does your company have the necessary processes in place to ensure the continuity of your business in case of a crisis or disaster? To avoid and mitigate continuity risks, Deloitte can assist your organisation either by assessing existing continuity processes and plans in order to provide pragmatic recommendations for improvement, or by helping to develop and maintain a BCM Programme specified to your needs.

Our Business Continuity & Resilience professionals have led the development and implementation of continuity programmes across a diverse range of industry sectors, building a wealth of knowledge.

Why business continuity?

Recent events have highlighted the vulnerabilities of businesses around the world. Consider how the following events could negatively affect your company’s revenue stream and brand image:

  • Power failure
  • Natural and infrastructure disasters
  • Technological failures
  • Major workforce disruption, e.g. due to a pandemic or strike
  • Security attacks, such as computer viruses, worms and
  • Denial-of-service attacks
  • Loss of critical information
  • Failure of a key third party arrangement
  • Acts of terrorism

The need for an effective risk reduction and Business Continuity Management (BCM) program has never been so evident.

How can we help?

Whether you are starting from scratch, building on an existing business continuity program or already having sophisticated capabilities around the globe, our team can help take you to the next level.

Deloitte’s experience combined with the use of a strong operational business continuity methodology helps clients build organisational resiliency, a state in which issues are identified and prevented before they arise, and people are prepared to manage the unexpected.

Our Deloitte BCM methodology is successfully field-tested in different environments and gets continuously improved. It also includes a comprehensive package of hands-on worksheets, databases and checklists that are currently used in actual business practices.

In addition, our BCM methodology is fully in line with the most internationally-accepted business continuity standards and frameworks, such as ISO 22301 (replacing BS 25999), BCI Good Practice Guidelines 2013, ISO 27001, BS 11200, COBIT 5, etc.

The enclosed brochure provides more information on Deloitte's proprietary BCM methodology and what it can do for your company.

Business continuity for the public sector

Government organisations provide services that are key to the proper functioning of our society. Both citizens and companies depend on the services provided by those government institutions. A failure of such an institution to deliver its services will not only impact the government and its employees, but may also seriously impact these citizens and companies.

It is imperative that government institutions take the necessary measures to limit the probability of disruptive events and to limit the impact of such events: they need effective business continuity management (BCM).
