Business Continuity-Disaster Recover Planning

ICC Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) Planning Services is a comprehensive management and support system for Clients seeking to improve their organizational resiliency and ability to react to events that affect critical services or functions. The main goal of this service is to help ICC Clients:​

  • Safeguard life, property and the environment
  • Minimise confusion and enable effective decision-making in a time of crisis

BC/DR planning is a continuous process, not a one-time task. It uses the continuous improvement approach to increase the organisation’s maturity of its preparedness, readiness and response to a disaster event. Because BC/DR planning is geared towards the long-term success of an organization, and to align the plans with the environment changes, regular reviews and testing is essential.
