Business continuity management

Business continuity is a process that helps organisations plan for the unexpected, better manage their risks and protect their assets. This means that in the event of an incident – which can include significant loss of IT, people or telecommunications through to extreme weather or a pandemic – they have robust contingency plans in place to resume ‘business as usual' as quickly as possible.

Recognition of the importance of business continuity management is increasing as more organisations realise how dependent they are on ever more complex systems and supply chains. An independent assessment from LRQA enables you to demonstrate to stakeholders that your business continuity capability is appropriate to the size and complexity of your organisation, thereby building confidence and helping to protect your brand.
