According to the Department of Trade & Industry, 70% of companies that encounter a significant loss of data go out of business within a year. This simple fact shows just how important it is to have solid and well-defined disaster recovery and business continuity plans in place.
Disasters happen, and many companies have placed their trust in what they thought were adequate backups, only to find them deficient when it came to the crunch. Being unprepared in such situations can impose crippling costs on even the largest companies whether in the form of a disruption to operations, legal liability, or, very often, significant revenue loss.
We at GB TECH understand that a well-rounded backup regime is only part of the bigger picture; that no matter how well-planned and managed, sometimes backups alone are not enough. What you need is a fully fleshed-out plan for coping with all possible disaster scenarios – including the prevention strategy.
How do we plan for Continued Operation
We have tremendously learned during the consultation phase, thus, we will develop a business continuity plan that will provide everything required to keep your business functioning, should a worst-case scenario develop.
One of the key deliverables of the business continuity plan GB TECH develops is the segregation of critical systems from non-critical systems. In the event of a disaster, the goal is to keep the company operating, not to provide 100% service coverage for every application.
This is the fundamental backbone of a solid plan: to provide the minimum level of required services to keep the company trading, but with a 100% success rate.
Your data is the lifeblood of your business. When a data disaster happens, the ability to quickly recover and retrieve lost files can be critical to your company’s future. With GB TECH disaster recovery and continuity, you have peace of mind knowing that the most important functions and processes at your business will survive even ‘worst-case scenario’ data loss. It’s this kind of security that helps you rest easy, even when your business is at its most vulnerable stage
