Why business continuity and disaster recovery planning are key to success and how to get started

If there’s one lesson unexpected circumstances like natural disasters, sudden sales drops or spikes, and economic changes have imparted, it’s that businesses must be prepared for anything. Challenging times can appear suddenly and managing business means managing change.

A moment in time can change the course of the future. Previously, that meant planning ahead for network outages that could leave employees unable to access work-critical applications or boosting security measures to prevent cyberattacks.

What is the purpose of a business continuity plan?

If larger, unprecedented events happen, companies may be forced to quickly reinvent their business models, shift to remote work, or find new ways to operate while trying to minimise disruption. It’s safe to say that these days, business continuity looks and feels a little different and a lot more uncertain.

The silver lining? Businesses now understand that being predictive and proactive is key to success and that having a detailed business continuity and disaster recovery plan in place is essential. It’s also critical to have technological systems in place to support and enable your company and employees in the face of rapidly changing conditions.
