The challenges of
BCP Scenario Planning:

Access to the right expertise
Most businesses don’t have the expertise in-house to deliver BCP sessions, but even those that do often want to test their plans against an independent third party.
Testing should be repeated
Cyber security, and other threats, evolve rapidly. Your BCP scenario planning may be perfect when you design it, but without regular review and testing from an expert it can quickly become outdated.
Achieving value for money
Balancing cost and quality, by finding a partner who offers value for money whilst also going into enough detail to find vulnerabilities, requires in-depth knowledge and industry relationships.
Careful consideration of risk scenarios
You need to understand the risks to your business, so that you aren’t overpreparing for irrelevant scenarios or underpreparing for likely ones.
Remediation of identified vulnerabilities
Fixing the problems that your project highlights, quickly and efficiently, is the most important part of BCP Scenario Planning. Depending on their complexity, outside expertise may be required.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.

AI and Automation

Automated scenario analysis uses algorithms and data-driven decision making to identify potential risks and disruptions, and then use them to create better and more effective BCP plans.

Adaptive Planning

Rather than failing a scenario and analysing it afterwards, adaptive planning involves the rapid adjustment of plans in response to changing circumstances in real-time – which allows for more flexibility and agility in the process.

Cyber Insurance

As cyber threats increase, cyber insurance policies become more demanding. Insurers are already starting to conduct PEN Testing on prospective clients. Testing their preparedness via BCP sessions may not be far behind.

our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.

Frequently Asked Questions

To understand our BCP Scenario Planning offer, or ask any questions that we haven’t answered, please get in touch.

What is BCP Scenario Planning?

By simulating a disruption to your business, we can test, assess, and suggest improvements to your response. Disruptions can range from cyber-attacks to natural disasters, to pandemics like COVID-19.

How does BCP Scenario Planning work?

We typically start by identifying the most likely threats and evaluating their impacts. Next, we develop strategies to mitigate the risks. Finally, we test those strategies to ensure that they are effective and can be implemented in the event of a security incident. If a business has already done some scenario planning, we can also come in to test them independently.

What is a BCP?

What we’re testing is your BCP, or Business Continuity Plan, which is essentially the process you’d follow in the event of a particular disruption. By testing it now, before it needs to be used in a real-world scenario, we can fix and fix vulnerabilities.

What is the difference between BCP Scenario Planning and Incident Response Planning?

BCP Scenario Planning focuses on anticipating and preparing for potential threats, while Incident Response Planning focuses on how to respond to an incident that has already occurred.
