Disasters of all kinds can cause devastating downtime to any business
A business continuity plan is vital to protect your organisation from unforeseen digital threats and uncontrollable mishaps. Cloud computing services allow for data to be mirrored at various different sites within the cloud’s network. As a result of this, business continuity is strengthened through simple disaster recovery and data backup.
Disaster planning must encompass disasters of all types and sizes: fires, floods, fraud, ransomware, cyber-attacks, power or IT system failures, human error, acts of terror, and much more. While the type of disaster varies, the impact is consistent: devastating data loss and operational downtime for your business.
Achieving business continuity through the cloud avoids sizeable up-front investment, saves SMEs’ time and provides access to remote, on-demand professional expertise.
The knock-on effects of downtime can be devastating for a business. Common disasters include irreparable damage to data, reputation, customer relationships, income, and business vitality.
In order to protect your business, it is vital to understand your vulnerabilities, whilst safeguarding against the risks and preparing for the worst possible business disruption in the process. A well designed business continuity plan and expert disaster recovery measures will shield your data, protect your business, and keep your systems available and reliable 24/7.
Disasters can happen to any business, at any time. When the right precautions are not put in place, many businesses never fully recover from the damages caused.
