​Business continuity – designing return on investment strategies

​Business continuity – designing return on investment strategies

Blog posts   •   May 06, 2016 16:08 BST

Return on investment… a dilemma for business continuity practitioners. How to demonstrate the value of something that is designed for events which (hopefully) never occur? How to access, then budget, resources, organizational importance and leadership, as this ROI is potentially a part of the 'beauty contest' with resource competing disciplines?

It is hard to get away from the presence and scale of the cyber security threat. The media is full of stories of companies who have been hit by a data breach. UK government figures from the Information Security Breaches Survey 2015 indicate that the average cost of the most severe online security breaches range from £1.5 to £3.1 million for big business and from £75,000 to £311,000 for SMEs.

When I was asked to give up my day job and write a contingency plan for protecting the port from flooding, I was a little taken aback as I've never undertaken such a task in my working career before. True, I'd seen lots of disasters. Some might say I’d maybe even created a few, but I’d never been asked to plan to avoid them.

Retail Business Continuity Association is always looking for ways to improve members response to events that are outside of business as usual and harmful to the member companies. Benchmarking against each other has set a standard that we can measure ourselves against and help management colleagues recognise the level of resilience in place and how that fits with the risk appetite of each business.

My current role leading the research function at the ​Business Continuity Institute requires specialist knowledge of business continuity. This specialist knowledge comes from rigorous academic study which should complement prior credentials and professional practice. Being part of the Diploma programme since last year involved a steep learning curve, but it represented a worthwhile investment.

Business continuity during transport disruptions

Blog posts   •   Jul 08, 2015 15:53 BST

Tube strikes or any other form of transport network disruption are hardly unheard events so organizations should have business continuity plans in place to deal with such events, plans that deal with any disruption that inhibits the ability of staff to access their place of work. These plans don't even need to be that complicated.
