Evaluation post exercise or a crisis is key. Evaluating gives the organization the possibility to implement the lessons learned from the exercise or crisis and to improve the plans and procedures accordingly from the gaps identified. Evaluating after an exercise or a real event will help you continually improve organizational resilience.
The organizations that evaluate and implement the lessons learned into their crisis management setup will also save time when revising plans and procedures

Business Impact Analysis
We conduct Business Impact Analysis (BIA) to create an accurate overview of an organization’s most critical business functions and dependencies. The BIA helps the organization optimize processes and workflows while creating the foundation for the Business Continuity Plan (BCP).
During the BIA, we will cover day-to-day functions, IT requirements, and dependencies among other things.
The BIA gives the organization a deep insight into its core business and helps map possible vulnerabilities.
Business Continuity Plan Development
After conducting the BIA’s, Krizo will create an action-based digital BCP for your organization. The action-based plan will be directly integrated into our platform. Our digital plans enable leaders and operatives to know exactly in which time objective to solve each task according to the critical thresholds analyzed in the BIA’s.
Krizo can also help review your current plans and procedures and place these on our digital platform.
Business continuity exercising is a great way for the organization to prepare for an unexpected business disruption of any kind. During the exercise, we will test the Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) established in the BCP to make sure, that each role on the team can respond according to these.
