Business Continuity (BC)

Business Continuity is the capability of the organisation to continue to deliver products or services at an acceptable predefined level following a disruptive incident; this could be anything from utility failure to denial of access to buildings.

How do we do it?

The council maintains aligns its Business Continuity management planning to the BCI (Business Continuity Institute) GPG (Good Practice Guidelines) & the ISO 22301 standard.

Why is it important?
