What clients say about the Business As Usual BCP template…

“We have had major floods multiple cyclones threaten our locations over the last 2 years. We are a law firm with approximately 150 staff in Queensland. We act for many blue-chip organisations including banks, who require BCP. Our BCP/DR template is a most useful foundation for our BCP/DR team to discuss and action in times of and leading up to the natural disasters. We are constantly ‘sharpening the saw’ regarding our BCP/DR plans and have seen the cost to the many firms who did not have, action or have an adequate BCP/DR plan. We were fine and continue to firmly focus on a plan which is premised on Business as Usual’s main primaries: People/Systems-Services/Location.” (Paul Agnew, Partner In Charge, McKAYS Solicitors)
