Exercising and testing, is an area in which we excel, even though we say so ourselves!

Exercising and Testing

Exercising and testing is a vital part of business continuity or crisis/incident management planning, which will prove the viability of your plans and highlight any gaps and areas for further improvement. It also provides an ideal training opportunity for those with key roles and responsibilities within your business continuity or crisis/incident management plans.

Scenario-based crisis/incident management and business recovery exercising is a particular area of expertise, in which we have a huge amount of experience, having prepared and facilitated well in excess of two hundred such exercises over the years.

In addition, we have planned and co-ordinated many, many IT recovery and user relocation tests.

We can provide various levels of exercise, from a basic tabletop walk-through/’talk-through’ of plans and processes through to highly realistic, pressurised scenario-based crisis management exercises involving multiple teams/locations, actors, journalists, radio/TV news reports and ‘live’ social media posts.

All levels of exercise can be conducted partially or fully online, using the client’s preferred web-based collaboration tool (MS-Teams, Zoom, etc).

We can help you ensure the success of your IT recovery and/or user relocation tests by providing expert support with pre-test planning, risk management, briefing of participants, test co-ordination, monitoring, reporting and follow-up activities.

Whatever your exercising and testing requirements, we can definitely help.

Whatever your requirements and budget, we have the skills and experience to help you get the best from your exercising and testing programme.
