Could your business carry on after a cyber attack?

Data breaches happen all the time. In this blog, we describe how we can help your business prepare for the worst happening.

Cyber attacks have emerged as the top risk to business continuity because they are increasingly more likely than fires, floods or other disasters.

Indeed, all organisations will experience security incidents at some point. Investment in establishing effective incident management policies and processes will help to improve resilience, support business continuity, improve customer and stakeholder confidence and potentially reduce any impact.

That's why we've launched our Cyber Business Continuity Exercise service.

Delivered by top talent from local universities, this service offers a review of your business continuity planning and the resilience of your organisation to cyber attacks such as ransomware or when attackers take control of your core systems.

We use elements of the international business continuity management systems standard ‘ISO/IEC 22301:2019’ as a model to review your continuity planning and includes aspects such as internal and external (customer and public) communications, recovery objectives (tolerable downtime, tolerable service loss), disaster recovery and recovery testing and exercises.

Service reporting includes a comprehensive gap analysis and plain language recommendations based on your current business continuity arrangements, impact assessments, risk management and your business.

We are able to recommend our Trusted Partners network to provide additional services such as business continuity management systems certification.

Our Trusted Partners have been accredited by the UK national accreditation body, UKAS, to provide accredited certification.
