Business Resilience

BUSINESSES

A poorly handled business crisis can easily cost you heavily, both financially and in reputational damage. Often something that gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, making resilience arrangements is an important investment in your business' future. Warren Buffett, US business magnate, puts it really simply:

"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently."

We can support you with business continuity, crisis management and communication, security and lockdowns, ISO 27001 (information security), mass messaging for staff and, of course, with incident management support when something goes wrong. Get in touch for a no-obligation chat today.

How Can We Help?

Health Checks

Not sure how well prepared your organisation is for a disruptive event or emergency? Our comprehensive health check will give you a confidential snapshot of your state of readiness, along with a series of simple recommendations and a risk rating for each - helping you prioritise what is most important and what can wait.

Testing & Exercising

Your plans are no good if they haven't been tested. Testing makes sure they work, and gets your staff familiar with them before a crisis hits. We offer testing, exercising and feedback at strategic, tactical and operational levels. All our tests and exercises are realistic, interactive and can reveal issues long before they threaten your business.

Business Continuity Planning

Poorly managed crises are expensive. If you suddenly found yourselves unable to return to your building, could you still manage your core activities and staff? Business continuity is about quickly understanding where you are and knowing your next steps to manage the impact. We'll support you through the business continuity cycle, make it as painless as possible.

Crisis Management

Applied Resilience draws on best practice from across the public and private sectors, as well as the armed forces, to offer bespoke crisis management planning and training. Whatever the size of your organisation, we can help you ensure that from top to bottom, you can respond dynamically and decisively to any threat to your business.

Info Security / ISO27001

Information security is just one element of resilience, but with our ever-increasing reliance on all things digital, it's a crucial one. Do you need help with developing, implementing or auditing an information security management system? Our accredited ISO 27001 team can support you to work out what your organisation needs, and to make that happen.

Bomb Threats

Even a hoax bomb threat can cause severe disruption and, if managed poorly, shake the confidence of your staff and stockholders. Do you know how a threat would be identified, communicated and managed in your organisation? And how will this fit in with your wider response and core functions? Not sure? We can help.

Incident Support

A poor response to an emergency incident or business crisis can cost you dearly. Knowing you have the security of experienced emergency responders available to support you during an incident, particularly in those crucial first few hours, can make all the difference. Our team offer incident management support 24/7, 365 days a year.

Lockdown

With the UK's national threat level at 'severe', meaning an attack is 'highly likely', having confidence that you can rapidly and safely lock down your sites and support your staff can literally save lives. We draw on the latest guidance and expertise to offer effective, pragmatic procedures and training for staff at all levels.
