Backup and Business Continuity
Making sure you can survive in ever more uncertain times
The Risk to Your Business
Businesses are increasingly reliant on their technology. Anyone looking at the short or long-term future of their business has to ask themselves the following questions:
- How long would your business survive without its data, without emails, files or contacts?
- What would you do if there’s a problem with your broadband connection?
- What would happen if there’s an issue getting access to your office?
- If the worst were to happen to your data, how long would it take to recover and would it be quick enough to avoid damaging your business long-term?
These questions all come under the umbrella term of business continuity planning (BCP), which is a vital aspect of running a successful business. Correct Group can advise you on your BCP so you can be confident going to work every day that should the worst happen your IT systems will have resilience and that there’s a contingency plan in place.
What Do We Do?
We monitor and test backups as a matter of course, ensuring that you have real peace of mind that your data is secure.
We will look at how we can build in resilience to your fixed-line connectivity. Would having a second line permanently running for resilience make economic sense for your business?
If a fixed-line goes down, could you rely on a mobile line for a short term fix? Do your routers have this functionality and does your service provider offer enough performance in your location to support this?
If there’s a problem at the data centre, what alternatives are in place and how quickly could you switch over? We also feed into business continuity plans, alternate offices, remote access plans and eliminating single points of failure for the reduction of business interuption.
Keeping You Running
Whatever the final plan looks like, by engaging with Correct Group you can rest assured that you can rely on us to have the answers, so you can keep your focus on your business, and not your IT.
