The federal panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks says the private sector is still unprepared for more attacks. The Commission is likely to endorse a national emergency readiness standard that, among other things, calls on businesses to conduct evacuation drills and develop a plan for continuing operations. Such a program would likely be voluntary, but it could become mandatory for businesses that would want to access government-backed terrorism insurance in case of another attack.
