Business continuity in the face of risk

At HSBC, we are committed to supporting your business growth throughout 2017 and beyond – helping you navigate any obstacles you may face along the way. While there are significant opportunities to be grasped, there are also risks that you need to consider.  

At this time of year, bad weather is a serious consideration and can cause significant disruption to businesses of all sizes. Business continuity is key in making sure your business can either continue operating during serious situations or recover operation in a short period of time.  

According to the business charity Business in the Community, of which HSBC is a member, the most frequently occurring problem for business is disruption to people and customers. A little proactive work can help safeguard your company against these and other risks. 

Taking time to plan for business continuity can pay dividends. Some businesses have found the 10-minute plan, devised by the Business Emergency Resilience Group (BERG), to be a useful starting-point. 

This plan allows small businesses to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies, no matter their form. It even prompts business owners to consider alternative premises and to list the information of key suppliers, insurance companies and more.  

At HSBC, protection is always at the forefront of our mind. We are happy to share more useful insights with you on how you can protect your business against key risks such as customer insolvency, cybercrime, and intellectual property theft.

Customer insolvency

One method of protecting accounts receivables against unexpected loss is to use trade credit insurance. How does it work?

Cybercrime

We want to help you build your cybercrime knowledge and help you stay safe online.

Intellectual property theft

A business should protect its name and its ideas just as readily as it would secure its physical assets. How can intellectual property be safeguarded as a business grows and enters new markets?
