Six months after the September terrorist attacks in the US European firms are still not doing enough to prepare themselves to deal with disaster.

Analyst firm IDC has found that the majority of European enterprises with global revenues of $100m (£66m) still have no formal business continuity plans in place.

Josh Krischer, a Gartner analyst, said recently that too many firms are concentrating on high impact, low likelihood events such as the World Trade Center attacks and urged businesses to give disaster planning a higher priority.

Christopher Young, managing director of the Impact Programme, reminded company executives of their legal obligations on business continuity.
