Business Contingency Planning
Each client's business is different and therefore each business contingency plan has to be unique to ensure that it reflects the exposure to the business.
The steps that a client has to go through to implement a business contingency plan are fairly standard and loss control engineers from the AIG Companiescan assist you in ensuring that all relevant issues have been addressed. An emergency response team must be structured in advance of any incident with each individual having designated duties. A business impact analysis must be undertaken to identify exposures and rate them in accordance with both severity and likelihood. Plans should be reviewed and updated on a regular basis and, where possible, tested.
