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
  • Fire 
  • Storms and floods

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.
