Business Continuity


Business Continuity

Disruption to your business can come in many forms; power outages, human error, building damage due to weather, cyber-attacks or hardware failure. The key to providing clients with the best Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is to firstly understand how the disruption could potentially affect all key areas of the business, then work with internal stakeholders to formalise a BCP data recovery plan that mitigates against all those risks. supportIT provide a suite of technology solutions and planning guidelines that addresses the needs of businesses in this area.

Business Continuity Planning

We have found that many companies have a disaster recovery plan in place but in fact fail to link it to an overall business continuity plan. supportIT can assist with tying the technology processes with the overall requirements of the business to put a simple, executable plan in place that can be followed by every staff member in the event of a disaster.
