Previously we’ve talked about the importance of having a solid disaster recovery plan and also the advantages of using our dedicated workplace recovery facility. One thing not yet covered in our blog however, and something that’s just as important, is a business continuity plan. Business continuity guarrantees you a smooth transition should any sort of disaster or shutdown of systems occur at your workplace.
What’s in a Business Continuity Plan?
The lines can blur between what’s typically called a business continuity plan and a disaster recovery plan, as they can be inclusive of eachother. A business continuity plan is generally self explanatory, and will contain all the neccessary requirements to allow a business to continue post-disaster. The main aims of any business continuity plan are: to make sure crucial data and files are accessible from remote locations, that employees have a safe, secure space to work in, and to make sure everything is documented and recorded properly.
