Business Continuity

We look after your IT, from exploring what you need and creating a solution that will work best for you, so that you can look after your business.

Being able to maintain essential functions and minimise downtime whatever external event might occur (including disease outbreaks, natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and civil unrest) is vital for business continuity, as well as an organisation’s survival.

While for many businesses maintaining all its functions might not be practical, identifying those that must be maintained and developing a disaster recovery plan should be the first step towards ensuring resiliency.

Dependant on digital technologies

Almost all modern businesses, whatever their size, are dependent on digital technologies.

Any form of disruption will potentially harm revenues, customer experience, supply chains, security, and your corporate brand.

Even before the current global lockdown around a third of businesses reported a significant business impact relating to infrastructure disruption over twelve months.

Business continuity planning

Key to implementing a business continuity plan is the development of a disaster recovery plan that identifies strategies for dealing with any disruption of IT services, including servers, networks, computers, and mobile devices.

The aim is to recover office productivity and enterprise systems so that critical business operations can continue. 

The four key pillars of a business continuity plan are:

  • Emergency and crisis management
  • Business recovery and continuity
  • IT disaster recovery and continuity management
  • Supplier and contingency management 

A holistic approach that addresses each of these areas is necessary. Without such a plan, you could face interruptions to your business, financial loss, damage to your reputation, and potential failure to recover from a disaster.

IT Continuity

While IT is only one element of a business continuity plan, it is an essential one. IT is, after all, the backbone of most modern businesses.

Recovery strategy

Each aspect of your IT systems needs a recovery strategy, including your network, servers, cloud services, data centres, computers, and mobile devices. Priorities must match those of your business functions and processes.

Full inventory

To develop an IT recovery plan, it is necessary to compile a full inventory of all your hardware, software applications and data and implement a system that ensures all critical information is backed up. Similarly, copies of software should be available for rapid re-installation.

Full data back-up

Businesses are critically dependent on large amounts of data which might reside on a wide range of devices, including servers, computers, and mobile devices. This data should be backed up regularly to a network server and additionally backed up.
