ABOUT STRATEGIC BCP & UNITED BANKSHARES

United Bankshares implemented ResilienceONE® from Strategic BCP as a comprehensive BCM platform to track key personnel and critical business systems—allowing the company to make important decisions very quickly in the event of a disaster or business interruption situation. Currently, 31 business units now have formal plans in place.

With consulting support, United Bankshares has shown that effective BCM means more than just compliance and has built a business case by defining its value beyond audits and examinations. The company culture now reflects the importance of planning. Where there were once only isolated plans or contact lists, there now exists a far more holistic view that elevates BC to a strategic level with greater relevance within the organization.
