Whilst Business Continuity Planning has long been established within the financial services sector as a high priority other industries have been less receptive in adopting what is more than just good practice.

BCP4R looks at these issues from a Retail perspective, encompassing all aspects of the retail business from store operations, head office, logistics and the entire supply chain through to ensuring that your suppliers have adequate plans in place. One key emerging area of any Business Continuity Plan are the new areas of consideration such as; public workers strike, prolonged loss of power supply along with continuation of supplier fulfillment from now hostile overseas markets.

With all of this and the continuing disruption of UK infrastructure on so many fronts retail business that have a far reaching supply chain network need to ensure that all of the appropriate contingency are in place.

Singular, isolated business or service disruptions as well as large-scale, community-wide disasters have shown us that a well designed and tested enterprise wide recovery and continuity plan must be in place.

Ensuring that an organisations assets, operations, commitments and relationships enterprise wide are protected is a critical element in staying in business.
The frequency and severity with which singular and regional disasters are occurring today prove that planning and emergency response of disaster recovery alone is no longer enough.

It is now generally recognized that business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning are vital activities. However the creation (and maintenance of) a sound business continuity and disaster recovery plan is a complex undertaking.

As organizations look to extend their recovery planning efforts beyond the life safety and emergency response incident management issues, and move beyond data center and critical applications recovery concerns, the spectrum of enterprise wise planning can seem a little overwhelming.

BCP4R will look to address many of these issues by presenting real life case studies, along with insight from industry experts in order that conference delegates will have the grounding and knowledge to benefit their business
