Business Continuity Planning

Business Continuity Planning will help you identify the risks that your business is exposed to, such as the loss of business resulting from major system failures or site loss. Generally associated with large corporates, this is an area which is often overlooked by new and growing businesses, when it is probably most crucial. Whilst a formal Business Continuity Plan (BCP) might not be strictly necessary, knowing what to do in the face of disaster is essential. Do you know what effect losing your phone or laptop might have?

The majority of businesses that suffer a significant disruption, cease to trade within 12 months. For a small business, the risk is significantly greater.

Dependent on the actual needs of your business, we can provide a bespoke solution that might range from a spare desk in a shared office to a complete “alternative site” with cloud hosted services and double-redundant fibre-optic internet connectivity.

Having a plan isn’t enough. As Field Marshall Helmuth von Moltke suggested, over 100 years ago, plans fail at the first encounter with serious trouble. So we regularly test all our BCPs, even if it’s a simple case of sending you a reminder that you haven’t backed up your phone or your laptop in a while.
