Step 2 - assess the risks to your business
What could affect your business (internal & external)?
Questions you'll need to ask
- What are the most likely and greatest risks to your business?
- Power cuts • Staff illness/lottery win • Fire • Flood/water leak • Terrorist incident • Theft/break-in • Unable to gain access
- How likely are any of these to happen?
- What effect will any of them have on your business?
If you have completed a business impact analysis (BIA) you can use it to start to plan how your business could continue to operate following any disaster.
