Business continuity

Business continuity is preparing your business for a crisis so that it can continue to function and recover in the event of an emergency. 

What emergencies could my business face?

There are a number of disasters that could affect the way your business runs, these could include;
Fuel shortage
Storms and floods
Bomb threat/Terrorism
Computer failure
Contamination of products
Power failure
Detrimental publicity
Loss of premises or staff
Lobbying by pressure groups
Technical or environmental failure

Business continuity plan (BCP)

We recommend that you create a business continuity plan to prepare for an emergency. To help you create a plan, we have produced a business continuity management and disaster recovery document and an advice leaflet which includes a 5 step guide from the Business Continuity Institute.
