Business continuity encompasses disaster recovery and includes all the system controls you need to ensure work can continue when something goes wrong.
“Business continuity requires careful consideration of the overall risks to your business. The process considers the wider operation of the business including its people, external infrastructure, and suppliers.”
Business continuity goes hand in hand with our disaster recovery services, but it goes even further in ensuring that all business assets, resources, and partners have a contingency plan in place.
Anything that could be affected in the unfortunate event of an attack, such as data loss or disruption in service, is accounted for.
This takes the form of a business continuity plan, which contains detailed strategies for how businesses can resume usual operations in both the short and long term.
Our business continuity plans in Glasgow and Edinburgh are perfect for businesses both big and small that are looking to secure their company’s future.
What is a Business Continuity Plan?
The main component of a business continuity plan is a disaster recovery plan that outlines the procedures for restoring disruptions to servers, networks, and IT equipment, including data loss.
The business continuity plan should then go one step further and detail several contingency plans in the event that the disaster recovery plan cannot be fulfilled or the data backups are compromised.
It should also include manual workarounds, to ensure that business operations can continue until computer networks have been restored.
Going Beyond the Essentials
An effective business continuity plan should go beyond just getting the company back up to minimal working order.
Our business continuity plans contain the roadmap for your individual business’ recovery, in the event of data loss or a disaster within your organisation.
