Can your business survive a disruption or crisis? Most organizations believe they can—until one occurs. Do you have a culture of preparedness within your organization? Find out before a disruption tests your resiliency.
Firestorm’s Business Continuity Self-‐Assessment offers a diagnostic tool that provides an in-‐depth evaluation of your organization’s preparedness. It measures current performance levels, assesses your preparedness against a model business continuity program, and identifies the most cost-‐effective improvements. Firestorm’s Self-‐Assessment establishes a baseline, and sets up process improvement metrics to ensure the best possible return on the resources invested in business continuity.
The Self-‐Assessment is completed in one sixty-‐minute interview. Firestorm then produces a detailed analysis and report of the results, and presents the findings to you and your team.
The Self-Assessment is a series of over 50 questions about your Business Continuity
Program and includes the following focus areas:
- Program Policy
- Risk Analysis
- Business Impact Analysis
- Incident Response
- Crisis Management / Communications
- Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery
- Communicable Illness
Profiting From Preparedness
Companies with focused business continuity programs do more than survive disruptions—many thrive in the post-‐ disaster landscape of the “new normal.” Will this be you?
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently establishing standards for private sector preparedness (PS-‐Prep), a nationally-‐recognized certification of preparedness that supports Public Law 110-‐53, Title IX. Companies who fail to certify under PS-‐Prep risk losing business to their competitors. Does your program align with PS-‐Prep?
What should I do now?
Every company should assess its level of preparedness on a regular basis. For businesses planning to obtain PS-‐Prep certification, the time to make adjustments to your business continuity program is now. Failing to acquire PS-‐Prep certification may place you at a disadvantage against your competitors. By taking advantage of this window to prepare, your organization will be ready to certify—and gain a recognized competitive advantage.
