Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
The world is experiencing a forceful amount of change in the way we live and work. Governments, organizations, communities, and citizens must adapt to rapidly evolving global governance, compliance, and information privacy demands.
Organizations are investing increasing amounts of time and resources into tightening their physical and cyber security plans. This has driven a current and relevant need for organizations to evaluate the way they do business.
Business continuity management instills confidence in organizational readiness to respond to disruptions, and recover efficiently and effectively, in the event a disruption occurs, reduce costs associated with incident recovery and instill client confidence in your organization’s ability to effectively manage stressful situations. An effective business continuity plan offers the added benefit of addressing process effectiveness well in advance of any critical incident.
We take a consultative approach to delivering business continuity, with a focus on awareness for, and understanding of the importance of individual and collective roles in the continuity process. We work to give our community of clients and partners peace of mind when it comes to their readiness against potential threats.

Client Case Study:
Our client is a world leader in health for women, health equality and health system solutions, developing innovations to address issues related to population health, patient experience and system cost.
Driven in part by Covid-19 pandemic impacts, our client sought a trusted advisor to review and update their existing Business Continuity Plan and Disaster Recovery Plans. The scope required a business impact analysis to identify critical IT systems and assign priority of effort for recovery operations, alongside training for leadership staff, including deployment and facilitation of a tabletop exercise to increase awareness and improve BC/DR plans and processes.
In partnership with our cyber security delivery experts, Wesben Global thoroughly reviews existing business continuity plans, emergency response plans, and policies, to identify key risks, issues and blockers impeding management of documented information. We performed an organization-wide analysis across 70+ business processes, and 22 critical systems, supporting our clients to refine program framework and policy structure, supported by leadership training.
