Can your business adapt quickly?

How resilient is your business?

Business resilience planning is a sound commercial investment where the benefits far outweigh the costs. Not having a course of action if a devastating disaster or service interruption occurs may result in total loss of the business or significant reputational damage. Additionally regulatory, shareholder and governance obligations to protect the lives and assets of the organisation need to be safeguarded.

How KPMG can help

An effective business resiliency plan must include an integrated and synchronised approach across all stages of a disaster event timeline.

  • Business impact analysis
  • Business continuity plan
  • Insurance arrangements
  • Training and awareness sessions
  • Scenario based exercises
  • Resilience and risk management maturity assessment
  • Emergency response

  • Crisis management
  • IT disaster recovery services
  • Business continuity services

Why resilience matters

There are continued threats that we often don’t believe will occur on our patch.  These include but are not limited to:

  • Extreme weather events
  • Significant earthquakes
  • Flooding
  • Fire
  • Extended power disruption
  • International or national supply chain disruption
  • Civil unrest
  • Terrorism
  • Biosecurity and ecoterrorism
  • Cyber security incident
  • Catastrophic IT event
  • Health and Safety events, including loss of staff
  • Legislation changes

Whilst the likelihood of these risks occurring may be assessed within your business as low, these can have a significant impact on your ‘business as usual’ operating level.  As a result we believe it is essential to ensure your business and staff know what to do during a severe incident, your systems can recover effectively, and you can prioritise recovery strategies to support your business regaining efficient operations as quickly as possible.
