For a business, one of the biggest fears is to have downtime due to a situation beyond your control. Losing precious work time, and potentially data, through human fault, system damage or a natural event can cause untold damage to a company in the short-term. Here are a few reasons why you should have a Business Continuity plan in place for your business.

Minimise Downtime

In the event of a system breakdown your staff can end up just being sat around doing nothing. This costs hours of working time and is costing your company money. A fast and reliable Business Continuity programme will ensure your team is back up to speed in as fast a time as possible.

Minimise Reputational Damage

If your system is down for any lengthy period of time it could affect your ability to deliver on goods and services that have been promised to your clients. In these circumstances your reputation can take a serious hit and you could lose customers to competitors as a result.

Data Compliance

For certain types of data, and for companies in the financial, legal and medical sectors, it is important that it is looked after and backed up in a secure fashion. A Business Continuity and Backup plan ensures that even in the worst case circumstance your business data and information is available in a secure place.
