Business Continuity Plan Development
Our main Business Continuity consultancy service is assisting clients to develop and improve their plans. Preparing a Business Continuity plan from scratch can seem daunting but Cambridge Risk Solutions can relieve the stress by advising on all aspects of plan development, including:
- Programme management;
- Business Impact Analysis (BIA);
- Risk evaluation and control;
- Determining Business Continuity strategy; and
- Developing and implementing a BCM response.
Our consultants work in partnership with your staff throughout the process in order to identify the most cost-effective solutions for your organisation.
We have a wealth of experience in assisting clients with their preparation and readiness for ISO 22301 certification, through development of a comprehensive Management System and supporting documentation and evidence, working closely to fully integrate any existing systems and processes. With an enviable track records in successful certifications, and having worked as a Lead Auditor for a number of accredited certification bodies, Cambridge Risk Solutions can provide as little or as much support as you require to ensure that you can gain certification to ISO 22301.
Cambridge Risk Solutions is perfectly placed to be able to assist with your preparation for ISO 27001 certification, with an enviable track record in successfully preparing clients for certification. Fully integrating a comprehensive Management System with existing processes and systems, we will leverage our experience to ensure that you are fully prepared for your certification. Moreover, we will ensure that you have the skills, confidence and understanding to be able to take full ownership of your management system and processes, ensuring continued improvement of your Information Security Management System.
ISO 27001 Gap Analysis
Think you are ready for ISO 27001 certification? Why not use Cambridge Risk Solutions to provide an independent review of your systems; unlike a certification body, we are able to offer advice and guidance throughout a review, ensuring that you have the best advice to prepare you for certification.
Business Continuity Healthcheck
The BCM Healthcheck is a special 1-day Business Continuity consultancy package, aimed at smaller organisations. Whether or not you already have Business Continuity plans in place, it is an inexpensive way of establishing how vulnerable your organisation is and what practical steps you can take to prepare for the unexpected.
Business Continuity Plan Reviews
Using their extensive cross-sector experience of Business Continuity consultancy, Cambridge Risk Solutions consultants can review existing Business Continuity plans against appropriate standards (eg ISO 22301) and best practice guidelines. If desired, organisations can also be benchmarked against their industry peers or other suitable reference groups.
