Digital Business Continuity!
The fact that a majority of organisations are updating their BCM programmes is a testament to the dynamic nature of today’s business risk landscape. Today, a growing number of potential threats, such as cyber-attacks, hacking, terrorist attacks and natural disasters, have made effective business continuity planning a must, in some cases insurance cover requires it. Has your organisation considered ways it can become more resilient?
Crises do not follow a plan, we all know that, to execute a faster recovery to normal, operations needs a different approach to that of the past. The importance of reliable and rapid communications with digital plans, tasks and checklist supersedes the traditional business continuity plan in hard-copy binders or, in more recent years, on their intranet portal.
Become more resilient
If a crisis does strike, a slow response could lead to a business being exposed to grave consequences. Fast-moving digital threats require agile, effective, and highly responsive business continuity plans. In the digital age, business downtime can be prevented by proactive preparation and a speedy crisis response, which are best achieved with a digital business continuity plan. Business continuity attack exercises have been treated as “Important but not Urgent” simply because exercises were time consuming to organise and expensive to do on top of the normal operations. This has changed. Exercise plans can be devised and tested with easy or co-pilot service can make that even easier. The audit data we collect and makes it easier to make improvements be more resilient.
