At 4C Strategies, we understand that each organisation operates in a unique environment. Its approach to Business Continuity Management (BCM) needs to reflect the actual impact of disruption on achievement of its strategic objectives and risk landscape. We work with clients to identify the critical resources, processes and services that underpin their ability to function in accordance with their stated objectives. We support them throughout the lifecycle of activities required across the organisation to build, verify and track BCM capability.
Examples of our work in this area include:
FTSE 100: We have worked in partnership with a UK FTSE 100 Retailer to move BCM from a side-lined discretionary activity to a critical consideration in business planning. For the first time, the Group Executive have taken collective ownership of Resilience and all departmental heads are being held to account to ensure a robust and resilient organisation.
European Telecoms: We have supported this European telecoms operator in two phases of activity. First, we advised on the development of new guidelines, policies and structures to support the implementation of BCM across four countries. In the second phase of this project, we delivered workshops to train local management to undertake Business Impact Analyses (BIA), Risk Assessments and the completion of Business Continuity Plans (BCPs), providing the options to be used to continue and recover critical processes and activities in the event of a major disruption.
All of these areas are supported by the Exonaut™ Suite of tools.
