Transforming business resilience

Predictive and proactive business continuity management

Business resilience is both a plan and a toolkit to help organizations recover, replace, or rebuild critical business processes in the wake of disruption.

A risk-based world

The world in which we live is changing, and the threats we face in the 21st century seem to be growing both in volume and complexity. Each day, we grow more connected in terms of technology, economics, and infrastructure than we have ever been in the past.

While natural disasters often grab headlines, human-caused events can also have widespread consequences. Because these crises and disruptions are so deeply linked with the very nature of the businesses we conduct and how we pursue them, it’s increasingly important to view risks as more intrinsic and ubiquitous than exceptional. They are no longer once-in-a-lifetime concerns.

In other words, risks are a part of the spectrum of operational factors that organizations should build around. To encompass those factors means focusing not just on “recovery,” but also on agility and ever-greater resilience so as to reduce the impact of events and speed up response. In short, organizations should consider the risk of their business decisions, integrating and strengthening their traditional crisis management capabilities under a new rubric that prepares them to be ready for anything.​
