BCM Consulting - NCEMA UAE 70002-2015

Aligning BCM Strategy with NCEMA

Looking at huge volumes of data migration and unforeseen calamities, both natural and human-made, it has become mandatory for organisations of any size to develop respective Business Continuity Management Programs.

In the process of ensuring IT security and protecting firms from data pilferage, many nations have come up with respective compliances and regulations.

The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) of UAE is committed and dedicated to establishing such guidelines for BCM Programs of the region.

It provides a Business Continuity Management Standard to build an organization’s capability to continue functioning and delivering its prioritized activities when its operations are disrupted to die to emergencies or crises.

Ascent AutoBCM© consultancy services are aligned with the vision of NCEMA and some of our consultants were involved in making of these guidelines.

These guidelines are applicable to all types and sizes of an organization that wish to develop, implement, operate, maintain, review and continue its prioritized activities following an emergency, crisis or a disruptive incident.

Ascent AutoBCM© Services

Our services adhere to NCEMA guidelines that can serve the purpose in referencing to the development, implementation, establishing and maintaining a BCM (Business Continuity Management) Program by all the public and private sectors across the nation.

During the implementation of BCM program, our services emphasize on providing help for the following areas such as:

  • Enlist prioritized activities based on the understanding of the strategy, objectives and culture of the organization;
  • Analyze and evaluate the impact on prioritized activities in case of a disruption;
  • Analyze the risks involved and their impacts on business disruption;
  • Develop the Business Continuity (BC) Capability of the organization with the intention of responding and recovering from the disruptions;
  • Develop an integrated and coordinated set of plans for increasing organization resilience;
  • Validate the BCM Program by conducting exercises, maintaining and continually reviewing for improvement

Scope of Business Continuity Capability

We help organizations in determining their scope of BCM program and provide a thorough study and comprehensive understanding of the objectives, strategies and culture of the organization, which must be ensured before setting  the scope.

We help in defining their deliverables, outputs, activities, services and functions that fall within the scope of their business continuity capability.

  • BCM Maturity: What level of BCM Program maturity does the organization currently possess
  • Geographical Location: Locations, facilities, and environment
  • Governments directives, standards, regulatory or legal requirements shall be fulfilled
