You never know when a disaster will strike, but when it does, you need to be prepared. That’s why we recommend developing a Business Continuity plan before it’s needed.
Business Continuity is about planning for the unexpected.
If you don’t have a business continuity plan in place yet, we can help you develop a comprehensive strategy and prepare your business for any data or systems loss event. Not only will it ensure your business operates smoothly, but it can also help lower the risk of losing customers or valuable data.
The first step to a successful disaster recovery plan is setting up a playbook that spells out exactly how you’ll handle all the problems that could occur.
An incident response plan should include:
- Maintaining critical business functions, such as phones, critical applications, and access to important data
- Assigning roles/responsibilities and contact information for key personnel
- What to say/not to say during an incident (internal communication) and how to communicate with customers (external communication)
- Expected timeline of when services will be restored
Your business continuity plan is a dynamic document that needs to be updated periodically. Maintaining your plan means that you and other stakeholders must periodically discuss updating the plan as technology changes and people come and go.
It can be easy to forget about something as important as keeping your plan up to date. When you outsource the work, you’ll benefit from having an expert team of professionals dedicated to making sure that your plan is always current and effective. At CORE Group, we will ensure that any changes to your company — like new hires or technological advances — are incorporated into the plan seamlessly so that it always remains effective.
We understand how important this is. We know how much time and energy go into planning for a disaster — that’s why we’ve made it our mission to help businesses like yours stay on top of things so that when a crisis hits, you’re ready for it.
