Details

Nearly 1 in 5 businesses suffer a major disruption every year. Yours could be next. With no recovery plan, you have less chance of survival.

How quickly - and painlessly - you manage to get back to ‘business as usual’ in the event of a terrorist attack, fire, flood or other natural disaster, or any other major interruption, depends on how effectively you can devise, and put into action, your own business continuity management.

This guide is the result of a unique partnership between the business community, police and business continuity experts.

Our aim is to provide you with a checklist and useful ideas on matching key business continuity management processes to your company.

This Joint publication is from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, London First and the Business Continuity Institute.
