Business Continuity Planning

Business continuity planning ensures your business is prepared for anything.

In the wake of a disaster, business continuity planning could truly be the difference between your business surviving or drowning. Stanfield IT specialises in all aspects of cyber security preparation and planning. Business continuity planning is a key aspect of that for any business.

Business continuity planning is essential to protecting your business. In short, a business continuity plan is a set of steps to take following an incident to ensure your business isn’t incapacitated. Building the right plan and steps for your business requires specialised IT knowledge, which is where Stanfield IT comes in.

So, the need for business continuity planning is essential, not just to protect against a possible cyber attack. It will be invaluable should you be subject to any unforeseen accidents like fire, network disruptions, or power outages.

    Bear in mind that comprehensive business continuity planning will not only save your business from possible financial hardships. It will also enhance your reputation and goodwill amongst clients and stakeholders. In short, you’ll show that you’re keen to protect not just your own interests, but those of your clients.

    Key Facts about Business Continuity Planning

    Good business continuity planning will ultimately reduce the risks and downfalls associated with natural disasters, or business interruptions that we are all subject to from time to time.

    Network downtime costs 80% of small and medium-sized businesses at least $21,300 per hour. Business continuity planning ensures you get back online and running faster and aren’t subject to astronomical costs.

    Backing up your data is not enough. Effective business continuity planning needs to account for hardware, software, communications systems, and all operations that rely on your IT systems.
    Hardware failure is the leading cause of all network downtime, accounting for about 45% of downtime. Backup infrastructure, high availability and cloud servers help to mitigate this risk.
    With ransomware being the most common and threatening form of cyber attack, you’ll be pleased to know that 96% of businesses affected by ransomware attacks survive and thrive after an attack, when they had a reliable backup and disaster recovery system in place.
