Is your business continuity plan good enough?
As technology becomes more and more sophisticated, relying on backups as your primary continuity plan can leave your business in a critical state. If disaster hits, you could be looking at hours or even days of downtime, costing you time and money from every angle.
The four biggest causes of business disasters are:
Fire, theft, flood, storms, power failure, each of these can leave your business without data or system access for an unknown length of time.
Ransomware locks down your computers until you pay. But the real cost is in the downtime your business suffers and the price of recovery.
From accidental deletions to unlocked computers and wrong access levels to critical data, your staff can sometimes be your greatest risk.
