Business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) management
Prepare for the worst with a BCDR plan.
Disruptions and disasters can occur at any time, but through planning for these you can ensure that your business is able to carry on regardless.
Our business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) services involve taking a thorough look at the way your company works and the processes and operations that are absolutely vital in its running. Once these have been identified, we’ll put a plan and recommendations in place to protect them.
What is business continuity?
Business Continuity is more proactive and generally refers to the processes and procedures an organization must implement to ensure that mission-critical functions can continue during and after a disaster.
From floods and fires to cyber attacks and supply chain failures, there are a number of incidents which could put your business at risk if you haven’t planned for them. Through creating a business continuity plan, you can be confident that your company will be able to continue to function even if the worst should happen.
What we do for you
When we help you with your business continuity plan, we will look at all of your business operations to see how they could be impacted should a disaster strike. We’ll pinpoint any potential threats relevant to your company, and will analyse the impact they could have on your processes and operations. Following this assessment, we will put together a plan which can be actioned in the case of a disruption, so you know that you can continue running your business whatever happens.
What is disaster recovery?
DR is more reactive and comprises specific steps an organization must take to resume operations following an incident. Disaster recovery actions take place after the incident, and response times can range from seconds to days.
Disaster recovery is similar to business continuity but it focuses on your IT infrastructure. A disaster recovery plan will cover anything that might impact on your IT systems, such as cyber attacks and server fires, giving you peace of mind that you’ll be prepared for any situation. By creating a resilient IT infrastructure through planning for the worst, you can be sure that you won’t lose any time should a disruption occur.
