Technology and Operational Resilience

Building capabilities to give you confidence in recovery

Companies are under threat of disruption more often and in new ways

As the evolving threat landscape, pandemics, climate events, and geopolitical events create uncertainty and exposure, organizations require technology-enabled resilience plans and tools to understand their enterprise-wide resilience posture and shore up their ability to quickly recover from a disruption.

Is your organization taking the right approach to resilience?

The impact of a disruption can be costly

Many organizations have created some level of resilience, but have not adequately tested their resistance to disruptions. According to PwC’s Global Digital Trusts Insights 2021 survey, 40% of executives plan to increase resilience testing to ensure that, their critical business functions will stay up and running.

A disruption can create an array of impacts on your company:

  • Operational impacts can create an inability to maintain your business operations.
  • Legal and regulatory impacts can lead to a breach in compliance.
  • Financial impacts can result in lost sales and market share.
  • Reputational impacts can cause customer dissatisfaction and loss.
  • Health and safety impacts can affect the lives of your employees and customers.

The lack of resilience puts business operations at risk and can generate negative financial impact in the form of lost sales, brand dilution, PR/Legal battles, penalties and more.

Build resilience for any scenario

PwC provides organizations with the ability to protect and sustain core business functions when experiencing a state of disruption to technology, infrastructure, or operational processes supporting mission-critical business services through:

  • Developing a broad understanding of current and emerging corporate risk scenarios
  • Prioritizing data availability and integrity, during and after a disruptive event, with a focus on maintaining confidentiality
  • Evolving prioritizing customers and maintaining continuity of operations through anticipated risks during business continuity planning
  • Determining the appropriate levels of recovering in alignment with strategic business imperatives

Can you withstand, or better yet, prevent headline-grabbing disruptions? Companies that prioritize resilience have shifted their mindset away from the traditional—and myopic—disaster recovery/business continuity model to “resilience by design.”
