Evaluate threats and create strategies to prevent and minimize effects to your business
Companies face different kinds of natural and man-made threats for which they need to prepare. In an age of lean manufacturing, outsourcing, and financial uncertainty it becomes increasingly difficult to prepare for emergencies and ensure business continuity after a disaster happens. TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants’ (GRC) experienced and trained experts are able to assess critical key components and help you to create a sound business continuity plan to enable ongoing operations.
Regardless of their industry, all companies are exposed to risks that can be attributed to a range of natural and manmade disasters, supply chain risks and/or utility outages, and such incidents have the potential to disrupt critical operations, creating catastrophic results. According to Allianz’s 2015 Global Claims Review, the impacts of Business Interruption (BI) have been ranked as the top risk faced by global businesses, and the consequences of such disruptions can be seen in industries and facilities around the world. Some of the top causes of BI include fire and explosion, storms and natural disasters, machinery breakdown, and human operating error.
Experience has proven that companies which are unprepared for a disaster are less likely to survive one, regardless of the company’s fiscal condition or insurance coverage.
Identifying business interruption risk, quantifying the potential impact to your company, developing mitigation strategies, and preplanning for a disaster are the keys to survival. These tasks are generally referred to as Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP).
