Developing a response for the unexpected

A number of organisations believe that, somehow, they are different and unlikely to experience or suffer from an incident, the “it will never happen to me” attitude. More often than not, they are wrong. No organisation wants to be affected by an incident or expects it, but that does not mean that they should not consider and plan a response in case it does happen. 
Developing and implementing a response to incidents and disruptions is at the core of Business Continuity. It can determine how your organisation is perceived and whether your business survives. It consists of ensuring the appropriate plans are developed and communicated; the required infrastructure and facilities are implemented to support the plans; and completing the necessary risk treatments to achieve the desired Business Continuity strategy defined and agreed (see previous article).
