Business Continuity means more than recovering your IT environment. It means making sure that your systems, business processes and people continue to operate at the level defined by your business requirements in spite of service outages. BIC’s certified staff provides Business Continuity Planning and Management. This is a holistic process that identifies potential threats to an organisation and establishes foundations for increased resilience and effective response in order to protect and preserve business operations, interests and reputation.
Business Continuity Plans are tested at least once a year. This is a full-scale exercise, which provides you with the confidence that should an incident occur all critical data can be maintained or restored in a timely fashion with minimal operational impact to your business.

Disaster Mitigation and Prevention, Fire and Safety, Power and Utilities, Generators and Fuel, Alternate Operating Location(s), Security, Supply Chain and Insurance
