Our Services

Investing in business resilience has been shown to lead to higher levels of efficiency, lower operating costs and reduced business insurance premiums.

Our core areas of expertise

  • Despite having a plan in place, 1 in 3 businesses fail to recover following a major disruption. Why is this?

    The reality is that simply having a generic incident response plan isn’t enough. To survive in today’s uncertain and ever-changing world, it is essential that organisations protect themselves by maintaining appropriate, individualised arrangements that protect their critical services and key personnel. These arrangements must be tested, practised and embedded within the culture of the organisation for them to be truly effective in the event of a disruption.

    Understanding what is critical to an organisation’s success and knowing how to protect it requires professional knowledge and experience that we at Resilius Consulting have developed over many years. Through skilled investigation and analysis, we can identify what keeps your organisation alive and help you to preserve it when disaster strikes.

  • What takes an organisation years to achieve but only moments to destroy?

    A good reputation is arguably the most valuable asset to an organisation’s future. And yet, all too often following major incidents – from product recalls to data breaches – the instinctive reactions of businesses serve only to damage their credibility further and limit their long-term prospects for survival.

    At Resilius Consulting, we promote a co-ordinated and pro-active approach to crisis response, working with CEOs and senior leaders to improve their real-time decision-making and supporting other key staff through the development of streamlined incident management frameworks. In these ways, we enable our clients to protect their reputations by making the right moves at the right times in the heat of the moment and ensuring their strategic decisions are implemented effectively across their organisations.

  • Did you know that, on average, even small companies lose over $100,000 per ransomware incident? (CNN Money)

    In 2016, data loss and downtime cost organisations $1.7 trillion globally (Dell EMC). Since 2012, data losses are up by 400% with the top causes being hardware and software failures, power outages, data corruption and external security breaches. In such a high risk environment, and given our ever increasing reliance on technology, having reliable arrangements in place to recover your failed IT systems, including regular data backups, is essential if you wish to avoid potentially crippling financial costs and serious damage to your company’s reputation.

    At Resilius Consulting, we will work with you to limit your company’s operational downtime and the impact of any future data loss by devising effective IT disaster recovery plans – incorporating both in-house and out-sourced IT services – and assuring these through a range of fully-facilitated validation activities.

  • According to the Business Continuity Institute, cyber attacks and data breaches are the single greatest threat to today’s organisations. What sensitive information does your company hold? And how well is it protected?

    In one way or another, all organisations hold sensitive data, from employee records to client information. With targeted cyber attacks doubling since 2017 and many organisations neglecting their hard copy data in an increasingly digital workplace, information and cyber security is literally not an area in which your business can afford to fall behind.

    Our specialist team at Resilius Consulting can help: we work with you to identify your unique vulnerabilities and formulate strategies for protecting your data, devising proportionate measures – such as procedural enhancements and staff training – to mitigate your risks and reduce the likelihood of data loss or theft.

  • How well does your organisation meet its customers’ needs? How do you know? Could you be missing out on a competitive advantage?

    The presence of an effective quality management system is increasingly a factor that differentiates industry leaders from the rest of the field. In today’s consumer driven marketplace, with ever-growing levels of legislative and regulatory control, organisations face high expectations both in terms of the way they operate and the quality of their output. In such a climate, ensuring the quality and consistency of your products and services is essential to your long-term survival.

    Resilius Consulting can work alongside you as you navigate the complexities of the quality management process, addressing areas such as leadership, customer focus, relationship management and decision-making. Where required, we can also help you to gain international certifications, evidencing your commitment high standards and meeting the needs of your current and future clients.
