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;
Storms and floods
Contamination of products
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.
