Business continuity can mean many things, it can be something as simple as having secure data backups in place, all the way to dedicated workplace recovery facilities to move your business to in times of disaster. Business continuity can range from small security fixes, to large-scale, elaborate disaster recovery plans with intricate steps and precise detail. For many people however, business continuity just means having peace of mind that your business and data could survive an unexpected blow or setback.
Having a business continuity plan can be one of the best insurance policies for your busines or organisation, here are three reasons why:
Your Data Is Safe
First and foremost, no matter what physical damage occurs to your workplace, or what sort of hardware is stolen or damaged, with cloud backups of your data, you’re instantly removing the threat of losing your files and records for good.
You Have Somewhere to Go
With a workplace recovery strategy in place, you now have somewhere to go and access your data, move your staff to and pick up any urgent business meetings and discuss where you’re going to go from there.
You Can Rebuild from a Good Foundation
With a secure base to work from and your data intact, the climb to reach where you were isn’t nearly as steep as it would’ve been without those precautions in place. In fact, with no data alone you may not even have a chance at rebuilding any sort of business.
