If you are running a small business, you will have recently struggled with the Covid-19 virus restrictions, despite having previously not wanted to think about what could go wrong. You might have been too busy with the day-to-day aspects of running your business and planning for the future but focusing on the positive aspects.
But when we’re talking about disaster recovery and business continuity, we don’t mean cinematic adventures. We’re talking about the small disasters that can change your business permanently. A single hard drive failing. The power going out. Even a new employee rewriting over a file. Without a business continuity plan, these tiny problems can spiral out into significant disasters for your business.
Your business continuity plan gives your company what it needs when something goes wrong. With contact information, lists of suppliers, backup plans, and detailed instructions, a good business continuity plan provides the structure people need, exactly when they’re about to panic.
What can a business continuity plan include?
Creating business continuity plans can seem a complex task. You think you have everything you need, but then you start thinking about new possible problems, about all the ways things could go wrong. However, a basic guide gives you a strong framework you can then apply to any problem. The same guide that solves the problem of a hard drive failing can work just as well for when the entire computer is stolen.
Because we’re a technology business, we focus on the technical side of your business continuity planning. If you would like a conversation around what it would take to secure your business in the event of a disaster occurring, call and speak to one of our experts. 0345 450 9393
