Bosses urged to review crisis management plans

Firms were today urged to do more to plan for unexpected problems such as extreme weather, staff sickness or cyber attacks after a new report warned that a "blinkered" approach was putting businesses at risk.

A survey of over 1,000 managers found that almost two-thirds believed cyber security threats were increasingly posing a serious risk to their organisation, with one in three being hit by some sort of attack in the past year, including losing confidential information. The Chartered Management Institute urged firms to have plans in place to deal with a crisis.
