Business Continuity

William Martin Compliance Solutions are proud to offer a full business continuity, emergency and resilience planning and management consultancy.

Our consultants are members of The Business Continuity Institute and have vast experience of operational risk management, business continuity, health and safety, sustainability and environmental consultancy. They devise and implement bespoke IT solutions to address business continuity in both the public and private sectors.

The Requirement

All organisations have a responsibility to their stakeholders to ensure that their business can continue in times of adversity.

Business continuity management, whilst deriving potential financial benefits in relation to insurance arrangements, is also becoming increasingly necessary to be able to evidence when tendering for contracts. ISO 22301, the new Business Continuity Standard, is one way of achieving this.

Whether or not your organisation currently requires accreditation, we can assist and coach to put in place robust practices to protect your business in the event of potential catastrophe, and ensure compliance with the current ‘Best Practice Guidelines’ published by The Business Continuity Institute.
