National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies 2012 Published

The National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies 2012 has been published.  Many of the risks are similar to those detailed in the 2010 register but some new risks have been added, specifically volcanic eruptions and severe space weather.  In addition, the graphical representation of the risk is more detailed and split into two charts.  The first covers terrorism and other malicious attacks and considers plausibility of occurrence in the next five years; the second details natural hazards and major accidents and considers likelihood of occurrence in the next five years.  This is a useful review of UK based risks and can be used support business continuity risk assessments.
