Business continuity services provide a roadmap for recovery.
When disaster strikes, your business has no time to lose. The best way to react to an unplanned IT emergency is to plan for one in advance with Byte Balance IT’s Business Continuity Services.
Helping your business recover from disruptive IT events starts well before an IT emergency. Byte Balance IT’s proactive approach to business continuity services includes identifying critical business processes and systems, determining the resources needed to maintain them, and establishing procedures for restoring them in the event of a disruption.
Elements of a business continuity plan?
Byte Balance works with each business owner to craft a business continuity plan (BCP) unique to their business and its recovery needs. The majority of our BCPs contain some form of these key components.
- Risk assessment: Examining the potential risks and hazards that could impact your business operations. Examples may include natural disasters, human error, and cyberattacks.
- Business impact analysis: Considering the potential consequences of IT disruptions in your business includes the impact on business processes and systems, as well as financial and reputation repercussions.
- Recovery strategies: Putting a documented plan in place of procedures on how to continue operations and restore functionality when an emergency occurs.
- Communication plan: When systems are down, how will you communicate with employees, customers, vendors, and other stakeholders?
- Testing and maintenance: BCPs are not a one-and-done event. Regular testing and updating are crucial to a BCP with long-term viability.
- Cyber security: The best response is prevention. Regularly identifying and mitigating cyber threats and vulnerabilities and developing a response plan can minimize or avoid many IT disasters. Our Advanced Cyber Security features include Intune, which helps implement many cyber insurance requirements as well.
- Training: Developing a BCP is pointless without adequate and ongoing training on how to implement it.
- Data Backup & Recovery: Maintaining regular backup protocols and testing data recovery procedures reduces downtime and eliminates the risk of lost data.
- Third-party vendors: Vendors can be an essential part of a business owner’s operations. A comprehensive BCP includes developing a plan to continue working with vendors during a disruption.
- Incident management: Establishing an incident management system and delegating a team to run point and activate the BCP during disruptions.
