Preparis Professional Services
Our consulting services are delivered by a seasoned team of subject matter experts, helping you navigate the ever-changing landscape of risks and threats to your organization.
No two organizations are alike, but fortunately Preparis’ decades of experience in Business Continuity, Life Safety and Disaster Recovery experience means our team has seen it all, so there are few challenges or situations which we can’t help you solve using our best practices and methodologies. Our proven approach allows our clients to identify, mitigate, and test BC and LS program risks to effectively recover business operations in the event of a disaster.
To quantify unexpected risks to your business and buildings, we partner with our clients to identify recovery requirements. This includes building consensus around recovery priorities for your key functions and critical applications. For businesses, this is accomplished by performing a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) or risk and vulnerability assessment. Once we establish your desired recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), we will conduct a recovery options study (ROS) to understand all options available to mitigate your risks. For our commercial real estate clients, we conduct full Property Impact Analysis (PIP) and Comprehensive Property Assessments (CPA) to provide actionable solutions and resilience measures for your buildings and property management team.
Key to effective risk mitigation is documenting the recovery requirements and strategies into your organization’s Business Continuity Plans (BCP) or building’s Emergency Action Plans (EAP). These action-oriented procedures provide command and control for your enterprise as you recover from the unexpected. The foundation of an executable BCP is Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) in order to continue your IT operations and critical applications after a crisis scenario. The procedures in the BC, DR, and EAP plans guide your recovery logistically to keep you in business before, during, and after a disaster.
Business Continuity and Life Safety Program success depends on employing a comprehensive testing program of your plans and procedures. Through facilitated tabletop drills of threat specific scenarios, our consultants have a wealth of experience in guiding organizations in these exercises. Our collaborative approach introduces your team and tenants to the concepts of focused coordination and preparation for your tests, monitoring and recording progress, and analyzing results in order to expose gaps and vulnerabilities to the unexpected. Upon request, we will prepare a post-test report for your management team.
