Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

In today’s fast-paced business culture, unexpected downtime can cause your customers to flock to competitors. Focal Point can help you develop a strategy for preventing and recovering from these interruptions.
Business Continuity Planning

Planning for the Unexpected

Focal Point’s Business Continuity Management (BCM) methodology reduces the impact of business disruptions by planning for the restoration or continuity of critical business operations and helps organizations resume vital operations within a pre-defined timeframe following an interruption. Focal Point’s resident business continuity experts are equipped with industry-recognized certifications like Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP) and Associate Business Continuity Professional (ABCP) and are ready to help you plan for the unknown.

Our Approach

Focal Point's BCM methodology and approach focus on the involvement of people, processes, and technology in business continuity planning and sustainability.

Step 1

We perform a business impact analysis (BIA), which evaluates existing plans, identifies the effect of threats to the organization, and determines which systems and processes need to be addressed.

  • Project Risk
  • IT/Physical Risk
  • Business Impact

Step 2

Through interviews with your team, location evaluations, and documentation reviews, we work to design comprehensive recovery strategies and a business continuity plan that addresses people, processes, and technology.

  • Recovery Strategies
  • Plan Development

Step 3

Following Steps One and Two, we help you implement the new business continuity plan and disaster recovery processes and test it, to ensure your team is ready to execute when the need arises.

  • Program Governance
  • Exercises and Training

Step 4

After we deliver your plan, we can continue to provide ongoing support to your team, including regular training, testing and tabletop exercises, and supporting plan updates when needed.

  • Ongoing Training
  • Validation Testing
  • Improvements
