Introduction to Business Continuity

Protect your organization

Flood. Cyber attack. Supply chain failure – or losing a key employee. Disruptions to your business can happen at any moment.

Business Vulnerability

Business continuity is about having a plan to deal with difficult situations, so your organization can continue to function with as little disruption as possible.

Whether it’s a business, public sector organization, or charity, you need to know how you can keep going under any circumstances.

Make a plan

A good BC plan recognises potential threats to an organization and analyses what impact they may have on day-to-day operations.

It also provides a way to mitigate these threats, putting in place a framework which allows key functions of the business to continue even if the worst happens.

BCM Lifecycle: a practical process

Best practice in business continuity is built on the stages of the BCM Lifecycle.

This process guides organizations in identifying threats, designing responses, implementing a plan and measuring effectiveness. It’s an ongoing process to continually build and improve organizational resilience.
