Recovery Planning

Modern restart planning must be based on international standards. Therefore, our process model is strictly aligned with ISO 22301

Restart planning is our job, so that you can do your job again in an emergency

Only contingency and restart plans that have been prepared and tested beforehand enable a rapid and effective response to critical events

„Wir hatten im Bereich Business Impact Analyse und Notfallplanung ein umfangreiches MS-Office basiertes System aufgebaut, welches in die BC Consulting Software integriert wurde, um die großen zeitlichen und personellen Aufwände seitens der Raiffeisen für Aktualisierung und Wartung zu optimieren. Hier ist vor allem die Abbildung BIA und Notfallplanung im Tool bcNAVIGATOR priorisiert worden, um hier auch für die Regionalbanken eine durchgängige Plattform zu etablieren.”

Experience has shown that well-prepared restart plans are usually the best chance to limit or even minimize damage. For this reason, restart and emergency plans are required by the responsible state authorities in most cases. On the part of the authorities, they are sometimes required as a basis for operating permits. In many cases, only restart and emergency plans have ensured the continued existence of organizations / companies!


The restart measures are defined in the restart plans from a business point of view. If necessary – if not available – business processes are completed according to BCM aspects. This especially concerns the business criticality and the resulting restart time. Based on the classification of the processes performed, the critical resources required for each process are determined from the “Processes & Resources” matrix of the Business Impact Analysis.


Appropriate supplementary information (e.g. legal criteria, existing service level agreements, existing prevention measures of any existing outsourcing partners) must be taken into account at the resource level.
