All organisations rely on physical assets to operate, but continued success and long-term prosperity are heavily dependent on reputation! Utilising assets for optimum results requires process planning, preventative maintenance and regular upgrading or replacement. In other words, remaining competitive and profitable depends on consistently meeting customer expectations. Reputation is directly affected by the product or service performance standards that you achieve.
The quality management foundation for many companies is ISO 9001, but whatever system is used, regular auditing is an integral feature. External assessment using our strategic risk management audit provides a complete picture of your organisation’s strength and weaknesses, allowing you to prioritise remedial actions and investment in security and productivity improvements.
Protecting your physical assets is a security issue but it is also a matter of policy. Your risk management strategy should cover all assets (physical and intellectual) but you must also measure how well prepared you are to deal with issues and incidents. Business continuity, resilience and disaster recovery plans are vital. Tests and rehearsals, security reviews, team training and full simulation exercises should be organised at least once a year.
The relevant standard for business continuity is ISO 22301. We can assist you in evaluating how well your reputation and relationships are managed. Your security and future success depend on being fully prepared and having robust incident response plans in place at board level and throughout the organisation.
