InQuest’s Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Solutions help ensure the continued availability of key business processes during difficult times. InQuest gives BCP, DRP, and Risk Managers a complete program to prepare for, minimize the impact of, and rapidly recover from risk events. The speed and ability of a company to lessen the impact of an extreme event and quickly bounce back is a critical competitive advantage in today’s environment.

Powerful features of our tried and tested methodologies put you in control of managing your BCP and DRP programs. Using leading edge tools and methodology and an integrated and coordinated approach to managing risk, InQuest’s Business Continuity Planning allows companies to provide a common approach to BCP/DRP for all business units and site locations while helping these units and locations implement their plans and measure compliance. Our approach helps you easily identify critical business processes and apply recovery priorities, recovery time objectives, and implement the necessary redundancies, alternatives, extra capacity, and back-ups needed to mitigate your business risk.

Through our focused approach, InQuest’s Business Continuity Planning ensures that priority is placed on the most critical areas of your company while integrating BCP/DRP within the overall risk and incident management programs of your company. Our approach eliminates the need for multiple, uncoordinated, and incompatible assessments for BCP/DRP, crisis and incident management, and risk management.

InQuest’s BCP Methodology and Framework includes a consistent tried and tested approach that:

  1. Assures continued availability of key business processes by focusing risk dollars and efforts where they matter the most.

  2. Looks beyond IT on the essential flows of cash, data, supplies, electricity, and dependencies on key technology, staff, suppliers, service providers, and facilities which can lead to single points of failure for your business.

  3. Provides a framework that allows implementation of a consistent approach across business units and site locations while monitoring compliance.

  4. Assures scalability allowing the program to be easily replicated time and time again in multiple geographic locations and/or business units.

  5. Provides significant cost and time savings through integration and coordination with your overall risk and incident management program.


We help our customers implement proven Business Continuity Solutions. The Disaster Recovery Institutes Framework and the InQuest BCP/DRP Architecture Framework are examples of highly adaptable frameworks that provide the catalyst for building a strong consensus for a Best Practices model, as well as laying the groundwork for a consistent approach to business unit coordination and technology selection for your BCP strategy.

We educate our customers in the use of the framework and methodology, and facilitate and help set direction for the development of a successful Business Continuity Plan.
