Fire, theft, flood, cyber attacks and other disasters that prevent your business from operating are believed to be rare events, and we tend to put them to the back of our minds. But unavoidable interruptions are not as scarce as many think: in fact, more than 50% of SMEs have faced some sort of cyber attack. Despite this, many businesses do not have sufficient business continuity planning in place.
The first step in this process is business continuity planning. Based on a thorough knowledge of your IT systems and the key commercial drivers of your business, we can design the appropriate protective measures to match your threats and budget. The cost of an absolute level of protection could well ruin your business on its own, so it is important to identify and prioritise the key threats and weaknesses.
As a final step, we conduct tests to ensure that all parts of the plan will work in practice.
