NWT BUSINESS CONTINUITY AS A SERVICE (BCaaS) PROVIDES ON DEMAND ACCESS TO EXPERTISE YOU NEED TO MANAGE THE MANY AND VARIED, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN OPERATIONAL RISKS INHERENT IN THE DAY-TO-DAY ACTIVITIES INVOLVED IN DELIVERING SERVICES AND SUPPORTING CUSTOMERS
WHY USE OUR BUSINESS CONTINUITY AS A SERVICE
When the unthinkable happens in the case of natural disaster, pandemic or cyber security threat, it puts considerable pressure on limited resource required to increase capacity in a crisis. When a disruption happens, companies often need to rapidly add members to their continuity team, but recruiting, hiring and onboarding continuity professionals when an emergency occurs can be extremely hard and time consuming. Companies often find themselves pulling in staff from other areas of the business, often with no experience in resiliency, and then throw them in at the deep end to try resolve issues beyond their skill level.
NWT’s BCaaS provides the professional support our public and private sector clients need on demand, when they need it to build resilience across all areas of their business. We provide Business Continuity Management Consultants to lead, manage and coordinate continuity planning, response and recovery and keep vital systems and services running. Our Consultants can help to identify and assess potential risks to infrastructure, systems, processes, employees and the supply chain. They can then help to build standards of resilience, create Business Continuity Plans.
From connectivity to full roll outs of collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, to ensure that the business continued to deliver to their customers.
There are several reasons why our customers choose to use NWT’s BCaaS instead of building and managing a continuity programme in-house:
Resourcing: Business continuity is a niche skill that isn’t readily available in the market. BCaaS gives you rapid access to experienced continuity experts that will deliver instant impact to your business. Many of the companies we work with think of our team as embedded members of their teams – integrating our experts directly into their processes as we oversee their continuity programmes and provide coaching, mentoring and training roles, that leave behind a lasting legacy of capability.
Costs: The nature of business continuity is that you never know exactly when your programme will be called into action. A company must build an in-house team and create its business continuity programme years before a major disruption brings the team into action.
The staff costs and leadership investment required to create and maintain an in-house continuity programme are significant – more than some companies want to invest. BPaaS provides a flexible and scalable commercial model that allows you to call off our capabilities as and when they are needed.
