Business Continuity Exercises

Develop your resilience capability by putting your plans, procedures and people through their paces. PlanB takes pride in creating realistic, safe and challenging exercise environments to do just that. We have experience in managing multi-agency, global and complex exercises.  

Importance of Business Continuity Exercising

Business Continuity Exercises should be conducted on a regular basis as part of an ongoing series of BC plan updates.  

The benefits of regular exercising:  

  • Confident and well-rehearsed incident management teams
  • Quantitative assessment  
  • Identify training requirements 
  • Identify industry specific knowledge gaps 
  • Retain and reinforce the skills and knowledge gained 
  • Meeting ISO 22301 or audit requirements 
Cyber Exercises

“You are going to be hacked: Have a plan,” said Josef Demarest, of the FBI. “You should also test and exercise that plan”

Simulated Exercises (SIMEX)

A simulated exercise is an interactive, dynamic, fast-paced and complex method of exercising incident teams and plans, in a “real-life” crisis.

Exercise Programmes

In the Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) it states that: ‘An organisation’s continuity capability cannot be considered reliable or effective until it has been exercised’.
