Have you ever heard the phrase, “We don’t have to worry about that – that’s what insurance is for?” Or perhaps found yourself uttering this same phrase? It’s a common sentiment, and unfortunately many businesses don’t realise how wrong this statement can be until they have a real disaster on their hands. Business continuity planning can help businesses navigate disasters and recover, regardless of how large they are or what kind of disaster they are facing.
Bryan Whitefield, a thought leader in the risk management industry, is skilled at helping businesses come up with a business continuity planning system that ensures that not only are businesses agile enough to recover in the face of a disaster, but that they are resilient enough to use a disaster to bounce forward and use it to their benefit.
Working with Business Continuity Planning Consultants to Navigate Disasters
Business continuity planning can and should be about more than ensuring you are able to continue doing business in light of a crisis. At the most basic level, most businesses are able to understand certain key aspects of the business continuity planning process such as knowing who is able to telecommute in light of a disaster, and whether certain processes can be moved to other buildings or facilities. However, more challenging is gaining an understanding of how business can take charge and move themselves into a resilience position that allows them to improve the function of their organisation and build stronger future risk management conditions in light of adversity.
Bryan can help organisations understand their potential for risk, can help train risk management professionals to communicate risk potential to the C-Suite, and can ultimately help implement a business continuity planning system that moves businesses to the next level in regards to their resilience position. This can help ensure that businesses are able to gain from any situation that they are thrust into, whether a disaster leads to a breakdown in employee morale, the business’s reputation, or to the actual operations at the core of the business.
A Business’s Strongest Insurance Is Its Resilience
Insurance cannot help recover all losses in light of a disaster. Ultimately, Bryan can help both risk management professionals and C-Suite staff understand that the best insurance policy any business can have is a business continuity planning system that allows them to take charge of their assets when disaster strikes, rather than become trapped in recovery mode.
When working with business continuity planning consultants like Bryan Whitefield, businesses must realise that their strategy should do more than keep them afloat in a crisis. The proper strategy can lead to a business continuity planning process that can even improve a business’s reputation or allow them to gain a larger market share in the long run. As a thought leader in the risk management industry, Bryan seeks to help businesses better understand what the right process and the right system can do for them.
