Business Continuity Management (BCM)

Unbeatable: EcholoN in business continuity management - Keep a cool head even in a heated battle, thanks to clear process sequences.

Fortunately, a crisis or an emergency is relatively rare. Nevertheless, they can happen. In that case, it is important to keep a cool head and act quickly. This is easier if every employee has been informed in advance exactly what he or she should do in those events. It will be even easier if there are regular exercises for these so-called emergency plans. The affected employee not only knows what to do in theory, but has already practiced and internalized it.


EcholoN helps you to identify the threats to your business, create contingency plans, perform exercises, and accurately document this process, including the outcome. The focus is always on the applicable laws, other requirements (such as MaRisk, the BSI standard 100-4, the ISO standard 22301), but also by the Supervisory Board or the Internal Audit provisions. In case of emergency, be prepared!
