'Nearly 1 in 5 businesses suffer a major disruption every year. Yours could be next. With no recovery plan, you have less chance of survival. How quickly - and painlessly - you manage to get back to 'business as usual' in the event of
a terrorist attack, fire, flood or other natural disaster, or any other major interruption, depends on how effectively you can devise, and put into action, your own business continuity management.'
'Building a secure business is not just about supply and demand. It is about the protection and prevention measures that you can put in place against crime, the consequences of a natural disaster, electronic attack, acts of terrorism and other events that would have an impact on your business.
You can do much to reduce the vulnerabilities of your business by taking time to review your preparedness to deal with emergencies and put simple and often inexpensive security measures in place. From the basics of identifying where your business is vulnerable to making sure you have suitable IT security such as passwords and making sure your key suppliers have plans in place to continue business if they are the ones affected.'
Terrorist groups around the world have for many years misused fertilisers to make explosive devices. The majority of these devices have contained ammonium nitrate based products, combined with other materials to produce explosives. Other fertilisers such as urea, potassium nitrate and sodium nitrate have also been misused.
