5.1 Introduction

The first genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were created in the early 1970s, but for much of the 1980s biotechnology was a phenomenon confined to the laboratory. In 1988, 'vegetarian cheese', the first food product created using GMOs, was introduced in the UK. This cheese was produced using chymosin, an enzyme derived from genetically modified bacteria, rather than the traditional animal product (rennet). Chymosin derived from GMOs is now used to produce 90% of the hard cheeses mad

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. While the day-to-day activity of an organisation may not be particularly hazardous, it can still be affected by a hazard not of its own making. Examples might be a natural disaster such as flooding, or a hazardous activity on an adjacen
