Keeping Your Business Prepared To Continue Operations Even in the Worst Situations
Business continuity plans are a vital element of today’s business environment. They are one of the most effective ways to counteract cybersecurity breaches or catastrophic events. Without an organized plan designed by Upfront Computer Solutions, you risk devastating losses and even closure.
A business continuity plan is a strategic risk management strategy that details the steps you must take to continue critical business functions following an unplanned disruptive event. Comprehensive continuity plans designed by Upfront Computer Solutions address recovery time objectives, asset recovery, employee and business partner management, and safety.
Think of your business continuity plan as a tactical checklist of vital steps your organization must follow. Each step helps ensure the recovery of business processes, management systems, applications, and data. Those involved with your recovery strategies should have clearly defined roles and responsibilities to take prompt and effective action.
Some of the most critical aspects of your continuity plan include:
- Establishing, testing, and implementing policies and strategies to follow when an incident occurs.
- Performing business impact analysis (BIA) to identify your most critical data and formulate recovery time objectives.
- Risk assessing to recognize the wide range of potential threats your organization faces.
- Monitoring the impact of downtime by measuring and testing the effectiveness of your business continuity plan.
- Disaster recovery planning that puts your continuity plan into action to recover critical data and continue essential operations.
