With Catalyst, business continuity planning is simple, scalable, and actionable.

Business Impact Analysis
What

Establish well-informed business and IT requirements, and summarize the justification

Why

Good specifications drive appropriate and complete strategy selection and better plans

Risk Assessment
What

Identify ways to decrease the frequency of disruption or the vulnerabilities that could lead to an unsuccessful recovery

Why

Business continuity is equally about decreasing the frequency of disruption and responding well

Plan Documentation
What

Efficiently build actionable response and recovery plans and answer the two most important questions – how to recover, and how to operate differently, until returning to normal

Why

Enabling the organization to respond effectively and in a predictable manner is core to business continuity planning

Exercises + Incidents
What

“Practice the way you play” by connecting your business continuity plans to an exercise plan to the incident module, all the while comparing the results of the exercise to pre-planned objectives and automating the collection of corrective actions and continual improvement opportunities

Why

Catalyst connects plans to exercises and incidents to make the exercise as real as possible; the result is better learning and the identification of improvement opportunities

Task Scheduling
What

Visually track response and recovery task execution and watch the plan/procedure interdependencies “play out” during an exercise or crisis

Why

Enables real-time adjustments to the recovery effort, minimizing downtime and impact (response and recovery participants can also see “when they are up” and Catalyst helps measure the actual duration of tasks)

Bullhorn Emergency Notification
What

Enable organization wide crisis communications and surveying, or do so in a granular manner from within recovery plans

Why

Keeps everyone – from large audiences to small teams – engaged and informed throughout the response to the crisis

Management Review
What

Catalyst captures management’s feedback on program performance and corrective action prioritization

Why

This is a key element of driving risk-based decision-making and prioritization, as well as aligning to industry best practice (e.g., ISO 22301)

Corrective Actions
What

Catalyst funnels issues and opportunities for improvement to one place, where workflow drives higher levels of performance

Why

Identifying and summarizing improvement opportunities is often unwieldly; Catalyst makes it easy and drives closure through automation

Performance Metrics
What

Catalyst has multiple ways to get the right people the right information they need to understand business continuity risk

Why

Metrics and reporting drive performance and change, and Catalyst meets the needs of all stakeholders

Security
What

Catalyst provides a highly secure environment with data encrypted in transit and at rest, with flexibility in authentication

Why

Today’s business environment demands the protection of critical business data
