The article presents the views of several executives and consultants on the Civil Contingencies Bill (CCB) proposed in the British Parliament. According to Steve Daniels of Insight Consulting, one point the CCB addresses is that networks are so interlinked that a data failure in one will lead to a lack of ability in others. The CCB focuses on organizations directly responsible for coping with civil emergencies but they derive much of their ability from other organizations in both the private and public sectors. David Lloyd, a consultant with Survive, a business continuity advisory group, said that there is still a lack of understanding of the details of the proposed Bill. The Bill is mainly about obligations to plan on local authorities, transport companies, telecommunications and the utilities; there is nothing that directly impinges upon companies. Keith Tilley of Sungard Availability Services warns that as retailers increasingly operate a just-in-time ordering and stocking system it is imperative that their supply chain has the right business continuity provision in place.
