Is your organisation prepared?
In an increasingly volatile world, exemplified by the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, organisations are looking at business continuity with a fresh perspective. While most organisations believe they are prepared for disruption, COVID-19 has proved otherwise. The need for business continuity has never been clearer.
If you were hit by a cyber attack and lost the use of your IT systems, would you be able to carry on? If your business premises were forced to close, what would you do? If you were affected by unexpected staff absence, how could you reassure your customers that you can still offer them the service they expect?
Being unprepared can lead to financial and reputational damage, which could prove disastrous. You could fail to keep up with customer demand or lose important business, or your customers could go elsewhere. Without a proper risk assessment strategy, your company directors could even face prosecution if a major incident occurs and results in loss or injury.
