Business disasters come in all shapes and sizes. We don’t like to think in terms of disaster, but what would happen to your company if your building burned down, there was a major flood or even a prolonged power cut? Could you carry on trading? If not, how long could you survive and how much money could you afford to lose?
Do you have a plan for how you would recover from an outage and keep running during the outage?
Having a Disaster Recovery Plan is essential and should allow the business to continue to function during the outage rather than just recover following the outage.
Businesses have a lot of excuses for not having a Disaster Recovery Plan, including the most common “we thought it would never happen to us”
Business owners need to take steps now to give themselves a better chance to be back up and running quickly. Without a Disaster Recovery Plan, one in four businesses forced to shut down because of a disaster never reopens. Common misperceptions about business continuity planning are:
• Creating a plan takes too much time
• Creating a plan takes too much money
• We thought we had no risks
• We had more important things to think about
• We thought our information technology was fine
• We thought we could deal with a crisis when it happened
• We thought we were too small to need a plan
• We couldn’t find the right solution
• We already backed up our data and thought that was the same as business continuity
• We didn’t know where to go for help
It’s time to stop making excuses and start making plans.
In our breakfast briefing, Richard McBarnet will explain the measures you need to take to not only protect your IT system and data but also get your business back up and running after any kind of interruption to trading, with the minimum loss of time.
Food for thought…
