Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. We maintain our Risk information in Empirical but we also have to complete an Activity Impact Analysis. Why is this?
A. The Activity Impact Analysis contains detailed information for your area that describes the measures you have in place to enable you to continue your daily operations should something prevent you doing so in your normal manner e.g. you cannot access your building for any reason. It also contains information on what you need to function from a different location, the mitigations you have in place to cope with any disruption and what support (if any) that you may need to achieve this.
Q2. When I click a link I have to enter my user name and password. Why is this?
A. The website is mostly available to public viewing. Some areas are only available to College Users with an Imperial log-in. You may be prompted to enter your college user name and password to verify this.
Q3. When I enter my log-in I still can't get access?
A. Some areas of the website and some documents are restricted. If you think you should be able to access these please contact the Risk Manager.
Q4. The Business Continuity Templates include a Stakeholder Analysis Template. What is this for?
A. This template is provided as an aid to help identify internal and external dependencies that may be affected if there is a disruption in normal activities. The results should be included in your Activity Impact Analysis with the mitigations you have in place for this purpose. Use of the Stakeholder Analysis Template is not mandatory.
Q5. The Business Continuity Templates include a Call Out List Template. What is this for?
A. Key contact information should be included in the Call Out List Template so the appropriate people can be contacted should something occur that impacts your area.
