UK businesses have continuity sorted

A massive 80% of UK businesses are confident that they have a full or reasonable business continuity plan in place, according to Version One.

A massive 80% of UK businesses are confident that they have a full or reasonable business continuity plan in place, according to Version One.

The document management and imaging company asked 75 UK organisations whether their business would survive a major disaster with 37% claiming to have a full plan in place and 43% said they had a reasonable plan.

The results show a 20% increase in companies showing this level of confidence, compared to figures for a survey in January 2006.

Tony Bray, Version One’s sales and marketing director says of these findings, “It is heartening that so many organisations are claiming to have business recovery plans in place should the worst happen. However, it is also clear that companies who claim to have reasonable plans are failing to consider all areas of the business when preparing for a disaster.”

But the survey also left questions unanswered with 32% of the 80% who claimed to have full or reasonable plans failing to explain what these plans involved.
