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.  

Step 3 - develop your strategy to deal with those risks
