Business Continuity Planning

We are all now operating under some type of “Business Continuity Plan”, some will be very comprehensive, others a simple list of “tasks” on the back of an envelope. Now that the initial transition to lockdown, and its impact are better understood, is the time to review that plan to ensure that you have covered everything. To assist our clients with this we have prepared a free 45 minute webinar (see videos above) that will cover the key elements that your plan should cover. We also have available templates that you can use to create/update your business continuity plans, please email us for your free copies.
