Context & objectives
Kedge Business School is a benchmark French management school. With 12,300 students of whom 23% come from abroad, it is one of Europe’s most prestigious business schools according to the Financial Times. Fully aware of the security issues, in order to meet the regulatory obligations of the sector and at the request of its auditor, KEDGE BS engaged Netsystem to help it document procedures for a Business Recovery Plan and, ultimately, a Business Continuity Plan.
- To meet the objectives of KEDGE BS in terms of security, to be able to quickly reactivate the school’s activities in the event of an incident and to meet the compliance needs as expressed by its auditor, notably concerning updating the recovery process.
- To propose a test plan associated with an approach designed to maintain the operational capability of the BRP.
Solutions & methods
To meet these demands, Netsystem produced a report mainly covering the applicational and technical constraints, and the continuity objectives as expressed by the client’s operational departments. The Netsystem experts also provided methodological assistance to develop the operational process in the event of an incident, designed to re-establish the nominal mode (drafting of procedures), and also proposed a BCP roadmap.
Key success factors :
- Thorough understanding of the client’s context and the objectives relating to the assignment
- Exploitation of the best practices within the sector
Testimony of Laurent Aubry (Consultant Assignment Director)
Working on the Kedge Business School assignment provided immense satisfaction as we were able to respond to a set of very real and well identified risks. We were ultimately able to leave the Kedge Business School team well briefed and well trained.
