5.6 Business continuity planning

An organisation's strategy regarding insurance for its business risks is no substitute for high-quality risk management and emergency preparedness to address all contingencies. Some incidents we have mentioned above. Others may involve IT security for example.

Examples might be a natural disaster such as flooding, or a hazardous activity on an adjacen

1.6.2 Education

Education is obviously one of the crucial dimensions in any attempt to develop a future European identity or at least more understanding and convergence among Europeans. If the school made the nation, it should also be a key factor in promoting Europeanness. Observers of the school scene in Europe acknowledge the existence of a growing sentiment of interest for European themes (institutions, politics, peoples, languages). Furthermore, the EU-based exchange programmes have recognised the impor

1 1 Learning from audio visual text

You might think that learning from audio visual sources is very different from learning from written sources, yet, somewhat surprisingly, it is much the same. As you may be familiar with watching videos mainly for leisure, this section will help you to think about how you can turn the familiar, but usually passive, process of watching a video into the active process of learning. Watching the video clips will involve the skills of engaging with the material and making sense of it for yourself,

6.2 A systematic approach to risk assessment

In Section 4 of this course you learned of the immense value of information to modern organisations. However, without a storage medium of some kind – paper, a hard disk, a white board, a human memory – information is entirely ephemeral. Once recorded in a medium, though, information endures and can be manipulated; but it also becomes subject to the vulnerabilities of that medium and of the systems that access that medium. And once there are vulnerabilities, there are threats to the securi
