Why should I include Business Continuity Planning as an essential business practice?
Business Continuity establishes risk management processes and procedures to ensure your business is prepared to handle any potential threats.
We know that IT is only one piece of the pie when it comes to your Business Continuity Plan. It's an important piece to get right, as your IT recovery processes directly affect your organisation's ability to continue operations in the event of a disaster: virtual or physical.
We know that every business is unique, so we have devised a Downtime Calculator where you can easily and accurately put a price on how much it would cost your business if it went down for some reason or another i.e. critical systems failure or data loss. Using your annual revenue and wages bill you can project the actual financial risk posed to your organisation.
It can be extremely costly when a business goes down, which is why it is so important to be prepared with an up to date Business Continuity Plan. We have created a Business Continuity Plan based off the Queensland Government's template, focusing on the IT requirements for your business. This document is readily available for download from the top right of this page.
To assist in meeting the requirements of your Business Continuity Plan, we offer Business Continuity Audits where we send out one of our IT experts to evaluate your current processes and procedures and then highlight key areas which are vulnerable. Your Business Continuity Plan should also cover Disaster Recovery procedures and Redundant Internet to help prevent downtime from happening.
