We’d like help with disaster recovery planning

Disaster recovery plans are an invaluable business continuity safeguard. Unfortunately, there will always be those days when the worst happens. Our disaster recovery planning and consultation services ensure that, when it does, the impact on your business is minimal.

Why you need a strong disaster recovery plan.

Unforeseen disasters will strike every business at some point. When they do it’s vital to have a contingency plan in place. A disaster recovery plan protects your critical business functions in times of crisis. 

  • Natural disasters.

Natural disasters aren’t something we think about often enough in the UK. Flood damage alone costs the UK economy over £1bn a year. Insurance may cover some financial losses, but unanticipated water damage to hardware storing critical data could cripple your business. 

  • Cybercrime.

Cybercrime is an incredibly likely disaster scenario. The UK government estimates cybercrime to cost the UK economy in excess of £27bn per year. With a cyberattack on a UK company happening every 46 seconds, all businesses have an action strategy in place in the event of a major data breach. 

  • Hardware failure and human error.

Both human and mechanical fault can cause business compromising data loss. They can also lead to financial losses. For example, power cuts can cost SME’s £800 per hour, and this figure only increases with business size. Disaster recovery planning ensures your assets are protected against both human and non-human error. 

Why your business continuity isn’t safeguarded against disaster scenarios.

4 out of 5 businesses that experience a major incident fail within 18 months. This is despite many businesses having disaster recovery plans in place. There are many reasons your current disaster recovery plans could be inadequate.

  • Lack of regular testing.
    Over half of the UK businesses with disaster recovery plans in place report that they rarely, if ever, test them. When disaster does hit they find that their plans aren’t adequate to protect critical business functions. This is especially true if your plans rely on automated data backup and recovery. An out of date or untested plan could miss whole segments of your IT infrastructure.
  • Poor initial risk assessment.
    The foundation of a solid disaster recovery plan is proper risk assessment. Failure to correctly identify potential risks and evaluate their business impact can leave your DR plans wanting. It’s vital you have an experienced, professional eye to evaluate your business and the risks it faces.
  • No Recovery Time Objective.
    Many businesses fail to set realistic RTO’s as part of their disaster recovery plans (or, in some cases, any Recovery Point Objectives at all). A clear path of RPO’s and predefined RTO makes sure your staff and customers know how long to expect a return to BAU to take.
