Business Continuity Consulting and Management

Could you maintain business as usual in the face of disruption?

When it comes to Business Continuity and business in general, different organizations will have different needs, but it all comes down to that question. With experience across multiple industries, MHA Consulting has full capability to create plans for complex problems to meet concise solutions. Don’t let your business resiliency fall by the wayside because of short staffing, lack of technical knowledge or other business pressures.

We offer a complete portfolio of business continuity consulting services to assess, implement, exercise and maintain the maturity and sophistication of your Business Continuity program

Assess Your Business Continuity

Current State Assessment (CSA)

MHA’s Current State Assessment (CSA) provides an in-depth assessment of the capability and maturity of your current Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Programs based on industry best practices and standards. The CSA will provide you with detailed findings, recommendations and metrics defining your programs’ current maturity and recovery capability. At the end of the study, MHA provides expert recommendations to heighten the sophistication and maturity of your recovery programs. The CSA is an excellent first step for new and existing programs to establish a baseline of maturity and capability and to develop a roadmap for future improvement.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA)

A rigorous Business Impact Analysis (BIA), including an analysis of recovery strategy options, addresses the key first step of aligning business requirements with IT recovery capabilities. Using its comprehensive BIA process, MHA identifies the business processes and information technology that are critical to the livelihood of an organization by determining the quantitative and qualitative impacts of downtime. The process further defines the organization’s target Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).

Threat & Risk Assessment (TRA)

The Threat & Risk Assessment (TRA) identifies the man-made, technological and natural threats that can adversely affect your key business and IT processing facilities. The study assesses the probability and potential impact of each threat and level of mitigation. MHA provides an in-depth report that identifies critical areas of risk and exposure and provides prioritized recommendations for improvement.

Implement Your BCM Program

Implement Business Continuity

Business Recovery Plan Development

While many organizations have information technology recovery plans, we have found that many fail to address business process continuity. Our teams design effective and thorough recovery plans and strategies that address the real impacts of an outage on your business operations. From the BIA to plan development and testing, our consultants help you mitigate business, environmental, man-made and technology risks inherent in your business.

Recovery Strategies

Defining your business continuity strategy reduces the impact of a disruption and the cost of compliance, while improving the efficiency of recovery efforts – reducing wasted time and money. MHA provides a detailed design (depending on your predefined recovery objectives, strategies and scenarios) and implements the technology infrastructure needed to recover assets and continue IT-supported business processes. We focus on the key people, processes, technology assets and data that are vital to your operations.

Exercise Your BCM Strategy

Business Recovery Plan Exercises

Exercises keep your Business Continuity planning program in line with your business requirements and objectives on an ongoing basis by validating whether your plans will achieve your pre-defined RTOs and RPOs. MHA consultants are experts in executing tests and simulations of predefined recovery and contingency procedures and making recommendations for improvement.

Mock Disaster Exercise

Mock Disaster Exercises validate your Crisis Management Team’s ability to effectively respond to and recover from a potential or actual crisis situation. Since its inception in 1999, MHA Consulting has performed over 500 enterprise mock disaster exercises for companies of all sizes. Our approach to performing a mock exercise incorporates both senior management and business unit leaders, as we guide the organization from the start of an event to successful recovery. Each scenario MHA uses takes a great deal of planning and in-house creativity. Please call us today to discuss how our personalized process can help you and your organization ensure the successful management of your response and recovery.

BCM Maintenance & Continuous Improvement

Business Continuity Planning is an ongoing process. Maintaining and updating your plans is an essential phase that keeps your program in line with your business requirements and objectives. MHA Consulting’s BCM planning methodology, or process, provides a framework of requirements, efforts and deliverables, each leading into the next phase of a continuous improvement cycle.
