What is it?

 

The Business Continuity Institute defines this process as follows…

 

'Business Continuity Management is a holistic management process that identifies potential business impacts that threaten an organisation and provides a framework for building resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value creating activities.'

 

Incidents can happen, and when they do, they have the potential to threaten and disrupt the lives of individuals, businesses and communities.

 

In order to illustrate the benefits of business continuity management for the businesses in Cardiff, the council has published advice to help your business through the business continuity management process.
