Improving Business Resiliency Through IT Continuity Services
With the increasing number of organization threats and global cyber attacks in today’s world, companies have to learn to prepare for the unexpected and be proactive about business continuity. Without the proper business continuity strategy, being able to make sure that your business is completely safe from digital harm can be very challenging.
In the past, most enterprises and SMBs defined a business disaster as an act of nature, like a hurricane, flood or fire. In today’s world, your business needs to be highly resilient by avoiding and mitigating multiple risks beyond natural disasters. With international networks, always-on web applications, and all-hours call centers, even a simple power outage could lead to damage.
Business continuity is what keeps organizations functional no matter what obstacles may arise, and ensures that the enterprise functionality will be available to its customers at all times. Intertwined with disaster recovery, which aims to restore a data center to normal operation after being taken offline, business continuity involves managing emergency coordination, notifying employees, and interacting with emergency officials as needed during a disaster.
There are three main components to business continuity to consider:
- Resilience – critical infrastructure and business functions are designed to combat disruptions.
- Recovery – fully or partially restoring infrastructure and business functionality following an outage.
- Contingency – organizational capacity to function during outages via planning, frequent testing, and regular exercises.
Don't let business continuity and disaster recovery challenges get in the way of your path to success. We provide complete disaster recovery solutions to protect the integrity and availability of your critical systems and data.
What is a Business Continuity Plan?
Do you think you could maintain a “business as usual” routine while a disrupting, harmful IT disaster is at large? A business continuity plan (BCP) is a custom, documented strategy that consists of every facet of the critical information an organization needs to continue operating during a disaster scenario.
A centralized plan for when the worst happens, a comprehensive business continuity plan states all essential functions of your business, identifies which systems and processes need to be sustained, and explains in great detail how to maintain them during a cyber attack or other types of disaster. Crimson IT professionals are skilled at developing IT continuity plans that contain every important piece of information, such as:
- Initial critical data
- Purpose and scope of the plan
- Clear policy information
- Emergency response and management
- Guidelines and order of operations for specific action items
- Helpful checklists, flowchart diagrams, and step-by-step procedures
- A complete schedule for reviewing, testing, and revising the continuity plan
Many organizations struggle to find the time, money, and expert human resources to commit to a fully fleshed out business continuity program. With its complex nature and need for technical know-how, developing an effective business continuity strategy is best left to those with expertise. Business continuity professionals at Crimson IT are well-versed in advancements in technology, network security, risk management, and strategic planning, among other key areas of focus.
