In previous years, Business Continuity Awareness Week has usually been enlivened by some real incidents and disruptions, but this year it has been very quiet. Could it be that the Business Continuity message is getting through, and that organisations are becoming more and more resilient? Up until yesterday, the biggest story of the week had been a recall of some boiled sweets! However, all that changed overnight with unseasonably severe winter weather reaching Western areas of the UK. Already the weather conditions have caused disruption to airports, schools and roads in affected areas; so maybe it is a little early to get complacent.
