Here we are in the middle of 2003, and still business continuity planning seems to be a new concept that has just become an "organizational strategy du jour" in some places we would normally assume have had comprehensive plans in place long before they were considered in North America. I recently came across this piece
in the Guardian, and was suprised by the rudimentary approach taken by the writer in describing the nuances of the field. After all, hasn't urban terrorism been a phenomenon that has affected places such as London long before it even registered in the North American consciousness? This report
posted on globalcontinuity.com last summer seems to support our suggestion that UK firms have not demonstrated the same level of preparedness as their counterparts in the US.
