The consultants in the intelligence project team have been working closely with one of the world’s largest banks, on identifying strategic risks to their operations in south-east Asia and developing a Global Business Continuity Plan to protect their people and their business. The project included creation of a strategic risk register and matrix where we provided realistic and objective identification and assessment of strategic risks likely to impact the bank’s operations over a 5-7 year period, including the likely periods of disruption to aid continuity planning. This led to a redesign of continuity strategies where the team created a new continuity strategy for the bank’s operations in South-East Asia which protected people, critical processes and activities at the centre of the bank’s most important clients.
Most importantly, we provide ongoing Key Risk Indicator monitoring. Once the Key Risk Indicators had been agreed with the bank and fully identified across a range of political, security and pandemic risk scenarios, the team took over the monitoring process to provide early warning. The monitoring continuously reviews a range of data sources and alerts the bank when Key Risk Indicators are beginning to be met.
