Business Continuity Management


Through our deep knowledge of many different working sectors and our qualified risk management methodologies, at per consulting we work along with senior managers to define and put into practice Business Continuity Management programs. A BMC is a structured process that allows the identification of possible threats an organization may face, and the definition of a management model that would ensure the resilience of the organization, and therefore its ability to face incidental situations. The BCM program includes activities and tools aimed at maintaining the continuity of business processes.

BMC program includes: 

Business impact analysis

The execution of a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) allows the identification of the major vulnerabilities a business may suffer, and the quantification of potential impact scenarios. Moreover, a BIA defines the best corrective actions to eliminate or reduce risks, and represents the basis of every risk transfer decision.

Business continuity plan

The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a structured document that derives from the BIA and combines all the different operational plans of the company. Its goal is to bring the halt of business continuity to an acceptable level in case of damage.

Disaster recovery plan

The Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is a document that details the actions to undertake during emergency to restart the strategic business activities within a maximum time span defined a priori with the company.
