Business Continuity | Small and medium businesses still not prepared for potential volcanic ash disruption

With predictions that disruptions caused by ash cloud could  continue for months and possibly years to come, the consequence for businesses is potentially huge.  Absence management consultancy, First Care suggests the disruptions are costing UK firms up to £3m a day while ABTA has estimated that last month, as many as 150,000 UK workers were stranded overseas and unable to get to work. Smaller UK businesses are, apparently, the least prepared for such a situation. A poll of 225 enterprises and small businesses found that 53% of small businesses are not prepared for events that could impact business continuity, such as employee being unable to get into the office, compared to just 18% of enterprises. The research by remote access provider LogMeln also suggested that it’s not only natural disasters that can impact on business continuity so small business plans to deal with these situations need to be considered and put into place.
