• Unplanned change can cause financial struggle, disruption to supply chains or even some reputational damage. In 2020 alone we’ve endured floods, fires, Brexit and a global pandemic. The need to have a robust and resilient business is more important now than ever.

    Having strong business continuity controls in place promotes a way of mitigating threats, applying a framework that allows key functions of the business to continue, even if the going gets tough!


    Does your organisation have a business continuity plan?

    Some of the key ways to ensure your business remains resilient include:


    • Produce and maintain a written business continuity policy
    • Undertake a Business Impact Analysis (BIA)
    • Develop a Business Continuity Plan and then test it
    • Ensure employees are fully trained and aware of their business continuity responsibilities
    • Assess risk to employees, suppliers, customers and others who could be affected by activities; both online and in person
    • Risk assessment focusing on the organisation’s critical activities
    • Create strategies and continuity plans to ensure the continuity and recovery of your critical activities
