Implementing well-planned, robust business continuity processes, decisions and activities ensures that you have planned for, and can respond to, cyber security incidents.
Having an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) in place will enable the timely restoration of critical services and the information, which your organisation relies on. It ensures you are properly protected before, during and after a disruption. Employees are better safeguarded, and they will be fully trained on what actions they need to take, should a serious incident occur.
Why you need to take action
Implementing an effective BCMS is more important than ever. Without adequate preparation, unexpected events can severely disrupt the effectiveness of a business and its ability to function properly. Already in 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic, 69.3% of organisations reported a loss of productivity due to a disruption, and 42.8% confirmed a negative impact on staff wellbeing. Since then, the pandemic has fundamentally changed the way that businesses around the globe operate. Many organisations are now at least partially dependent on remote working, putting pressure on IT infrastructure. Furthermore, cyber criminals are launching targeted attacks to try and benefit from new vulnerabilities, and so cyber-crime incidents are increasing.
During challenging times, we believe your organisation needs to provide service continuity in a safe, flexible, and compassionate manner. This will help your employees, and their families feel secure when they could be experiencing uncertainty in other aspects of their lives.
To be successful, business continuity management must become embedded into the culture of your organisation. We can help you achieve this through a combination of raising awareness of business continuity and the successful implementation of a robust BCMS. Our business continuity approach is based on industry standards, including ISO 22301, and is an established part of our preparations for mitigating risks that could be faced by your organisation.
We work with you to understand your business risks and risk appetite in order to provide pragmatic business continuity and IT disaster recovery solutions that meet your recovery and financial constraints.
