Business Continuity as a Service

Our Business Continuity as a Service (BCaaS) is proven to build executable programs in a timely, cost-effective, and efficient manner.

Our BCaaS addresses many of the challenges facing BCM programs today:

  • Limited budget and people for a properly resourced BCM Program.

 

  • Demand for experienced staff to manage your BCM program.

 

  • Lack of experienced subject matter experts.

 

  • Compliance with customer, regulatory or audit requirements.

 

  • Need for automated tools for BCM planning.

 

  • Need to justify the BCM program to senior management.

Is MHA BCaaS a Good Investment?

business continuity maintenance

BCaaS yields a significant return on investment by building a sound program foundation from the start, eliminating the errors, missteps, and confusion often encountered in developing a BCM program.

The financial investment for BCaaS varies based on organizational size and need, but the investment per year is typically less than the fully loaded cost to employ a full-time senior-level BCM professional.

Included in the cost of the annual BCaaS is access to one or more of MHA’s BCM experts, each with 15 years or more of BCM experience, as required to meet your needs.
