Continuity of Operations

Prevention is not always possible, but preparedness is. 
MSA’s team of experts possesses a broad spectrum of skills in the continuity arena and can assist you with the implementation of Business Continuity Planning (BCP). Our disaster-tested approach helps you fulfill federal regulations and fortify your business.

According to Federal Mandates: 

All organizations, regardless of their size or location, shall have in place a viable continuity capability to ensure the continued performance of essential functions under all conditions. A viable continuity capability consists of the following elements:

  • Program Plans & Procedures
  • Risk Management
  • Budgeting & Acquisition of Resources
  • Essential Functions
  • Orders of Succession
  • Delegations of Authority
  • Continuity Facilities
  • Communications
  • Vital Records Management
  • Human Capital
  • Devolution
  • Reconstitution
  • Test, Training & Exercising (TT&E)

  • Risk assessments
  • Business impact analysis
  • Establishment of continuity processes
