Business Continuity


Have you ever considered how your organisation would cope in an emergency? This might be a small scale emergency such as the loss of power for 24 hours or a major incident where your building has been damaged or destroyed, or have you considered what would happen if half your staff were absent from work with the flu?

We all hope that it won’t happen but statistics show that nearly 1 in 5 organisations suffer disruption every year. You can’t stop it happening, but you can help to protect your organisation by putting together a business continuity plan. This is a plan which will help you to maintain your critical services during times of disruption.
