Horizonscan’s award winning Crisis Simulation Exercise (CSE) tests an organisation’s ability to respond to a crisis event through a table top exercise. Through the CSE, we will review your current documentation, examine the competency of your Crisis Command Team and produce a follow-up improvement report with key recommendations.
Our exercises are delivered by coaches with decades of operational and technical experience in Business Continuity, Crisis Management and Emergency Response. We have delivered over 400 of these exercises around the world in different markets, different industries and for businesses both large and small.
We run three tiers of exercises: a fully coached Level 1; a Level 2 exercise designed to test current plans and competency; and a Level 3 that is fully bespoke and targets specific weaknesses.
The Readiness Assessment provides a full review of the current state of Resilience for a business. The assessment is based upon international best practice and guidelines, including ISO 22301 (Business Continuity), ISO 22316 (Organisational Resilience) and BS 11200 (Crisis Management).
The assessment looks at current documentation, internal processes, plus awareness and competency of staff. At the end of the assessment, the business will be provided with a report that provides recommendations and actions for improvement. The Readiness Assessment also includes an overall score which is industry benchmarked.
This product is ideal for a business that is trying to understand how resilient they currently are and what investment would be needed to take them to the next level.
For Businesses looking to write either a Business Continuity Plan from scratch or to update an existing plan, Horizonscan can provide this support. Horizonscan has developed a BCP template after working with clients around the world and studying best practice from their response.
This template provides a basis for a company to develop their plan from. Horizonscan’s consultants will provide support throughout the development of the BCP, including writing sections, reviewing the document and answering questions. At the end of this process, a business will have a new BCP in place that is linked directly into how the company operates. It will now be ready for testing and validating through a table-top exercise to ensure that it contains everything necessary to respond to any disruption.
Horizonscan’s Business Continuity Maintenance Contract is a 12-month service that develops all the documentations and plans, trains all staff to an agreed level and tests the BCP through a table-top exercise.
Horizonscan essentially becomes your outsourced Business Continuity department, ensuring that processes are set up and implemented to manage Business Continuity. After the first 12-months, a sustainable system will be set up that can then be managed by the business with Horizonscan moving to a training and testing role.
This product is ideal for small businesses that are looking to bring in external support to develop plans and processes.
Horizonscan will work with your business to develop Emergency Response Plans that cover how to respond to specific threats and scenarios for the business. These plans will be based around industry best practice and relevant regulations for how a business needs to respond to emergency situations.
Horizonscan has developed a specific Food Safety Exercise for companies in the Food and Drink industry. This has been delivered for suppliers for the main UK supermarkets and restaurant chains.
Each scenario is bespoke per company and will evaluate their escalation procedures, traceability, customer/supplier liaison and dealing with the media. Our exercises are delivered by coaches with decades of operational and technical experience in Business Continuity, Crisis Management and Emergency Response. Through the exercise, we will review your current documentation, examine the competency of your Crisis Command Team and produce a follow-up improvement report with key recommendations.
