Who we are

Elaine Heyworth - Director - Risk Management & Business Continuity

Business Continuity is the capability to continue delivery of services at acceptable pre-defined levels following a disruptive incident, whether the incident is due to a problem with the building, IT or other resource.

In order to plan for the continuation of services, we:

  • Research horizon scan reports and raise awareness of serious and likely future disruptive risks.
  • Support the development of pragmatic emergency arrangements.
  • Advise and coordinate the development of appropriate business continuity plans.
  • Maintain and continually improving procedures for managing serious incidents.
  • Organise business continuity exercises to rehearse staff and validate plans.
