Business continuity

Business continuity is planning for the worst case scenario, taking steps to prevent it happening and developing strategies and plans to help you recover should they occur. 

Pro-actively planning how you can get your organisation up and running again after an incident means that you are much more likely to continue providing employment, meet customer need and ultimately, survive the incident. 

It may seem excessive to prepare and maintain a plan for the unexpected, but consider what would happen if today you lost your electricity supply or access to your premises for an extended period.

Our downloadable guide to business continuity management sets out a few handy tips which may help your business or organisation survive an emergency, as well as a template to help you to start a plan of your own.
