A business continuity plan will ensure that the impact of an emergency on your business is minimised. It will help your business handle the emergency, continue to function and recover effectively afterwards.
Businesses continuity plans are designed to help organisations respond to and recover from disruptions, whatever their source and whatever aspect of the business they affect. They tend not to focus on preparing for specific emergencies such as a flu pandemic or terrorist attack.
