Business continuity in emergencies

Business Continuity Management

Good Business Continuity Management helps businesses manage the risks to their organisation and services, ensuring that the business can continue in the event of a disruption. Planning and exercises can help in preparing robust Business Continuity Plans and identify the key steps that need to be taken to recover from any disruption.

Under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, local authorities have a duty to plan for business continuity and advise local residents about this.
