What is business continuity?
Business continuity is when organisations plan and prepare for business activities or processes being interrupted by external and/or internal factors so they can continue to function during and after a disruption.
Business Continuity and the Pandemic Threat
How would your business fare if more than half your employees, including those you rely on to execute your business continuity plan, were ill – or worse?
Although nothing can be done to prevent pandemics, their impact can be significantly mitigated. Business Continuity and the Pandemic Threat explains how.
Part I: Understanding the Threat provides the reader with a detailed overview of the challenge that pandemic threats can present. It uses historical examples to illustrate how pandemics can have devastating effects not only on the global population but also on critical infrastructure, the global economy and society.
Part II: Preparing for the Inevitable considers the actions that can be taken at a global, national, corporate and individual level to mitigate the risk and limit the damage of pandemic incidents. It provides guidance on creating and validating a pandemic plan and explains how it integrates with a business continuity plan. Comprehensive case studies are provided throughout.
