Element 10: Business continuity and vital records

The process by which the Council ensures business continuity.

Warning sign 2

The Civil Contingencies Service heads emergency planning for East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire Councils.

As part of the business continuity planning process each key service is required to complete a Business Impact Analysis. The services must identify any vital records they hold, how they are stored and if there are any back-ups. This covers paper and electronic records.

Within the Council, the Corporate Risk Management Group meets quarterly to discuss risk management issues. Each department is represented on the group.

The Council ICT team is responsible for maintaining the back-up and retrieval of electronic records held on Council IT systems.
