Business Continuity Planning Services

Universities and colleges face unique vulnerabilities and exposures, and experience specific challenges when it comes to continuity and incident planning.

Why do you need a continuity and incident management plan?

If your institution is affected by a major incident that seriously affects ongoing operations, you will want to make sure that your response is well managed and properly prioritised. By making arrangements in advance to prepare for major incidents, you can minimise the impact if the worst does happen.

As one of the benefits of joining UMAL, Members automatically receive a complimentary one day strategic review from Ashton Resilience, and are also offered a range of planning services at preferential rates.

With extensive experience of working with Higher and Further Education organisations, Ashton Resilience have developed these services specifically for the sector. Their philosophy of using existing systems (where possible) means that they can assist institutions with mature processes, as well as those that are just beginning to develop their contingency planning strategies.

Ashton Resilience always makes sure that their solutions can be deployed cost effectively while using resources efficiently.  See www.ashtonresilience.com for further details.
