Business Continuity Awareness Week is May 17 to 21, 2021. This year’s theme is “Business Continuity Starts with You.” The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the way we do business and how we manage the impacts of service disruptions. This has highlighted the importance of business continuity planning. Carleton’s Emergency Management and Continuity of Operations (EMCO) Office recommends that you set aside time regularly, at least once a year, to review your department’s business continuity plan and make appropriate updates.
