If you are a small to medium sized company, an unplanned event of any nature can have a devastating impact on your company. Central to the operation of your company is your IT infrastructure, as your productivity will be immediately affected if there is any unexpected system downtime.
Disasters that could put your business at risk range from fires, or floods, to IT system failure, or the sudden illness of one of your key staff members. It is essential to anticipate these risks, which is why you should pay close attention to your business continuity planning.
The aim of business continuity planning is to ensure that any damage caused as a result of any of these hypothetical scenarios is limited, or even prevented. It involves defining what your company must do to be able to continue functioning should a disaster occur and could even potentially prevent such a disaster occurring at all. Good business continuity planning involves considering various hypothetical scenarios and keeping your procedures under constant review.
Your company’s business continuity planning is never finished – it will always remain a “work in progress” – and it is vital that you have your disaster contingencies regularly tested. The testing phase is no less important than the planning element, as you will want to know that your business continuity plan would actually result in a full recovery.
