Business Continuity Plan Article from eMazzanti Technologies

Hoboken, New Jersey ­- (Vocus) August 18, 2013 When a business’s data is compromised, it’s just a matter of time before the business is seriously affected as a new article eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support and network consulting firm, explains. The article is called: A Business Continuity Plan Gives You One less Thing to Worry About. Of course, the cause of the data problem, man-made or natural disaster, doesn’t really matter. In the end a business is going to be dramatically affected.

“The importance of having a business continuity plan in place was never clearer than when Hurricane Sandy proved to be the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of 2012 according to the US National Weather Service, “ noted Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “Many businesses caught un-prepared paid a heavy-price their procrastination.”

As far as protecting your business is concerned, a business continuity plan is also the least expensive option for small companies because it costs virtually nothing to produce. Utilizing tools such as {e}Care Business Continuity and Recovery Services, and putting the plan into practice, will dramatically improve a company’s chances of continuing operations during a significant event.


Putting a plan in place

In layman’s terms, the plan details how employees can go about their daily jobs and communicate in the event of a disaster or emergency. Here is an abbreviated look at how a small or medium-sized business can establish a business continuity plan:

◦Document and backup key internal personnel

◦Identify employees who can telecommute

◦Document external contacts and critical equipment

◦Identify critical documents, contingency equipment options and secondary office locations

◦Make a list of who should do what and when

◦Communicate and test the plan

◦Review, revise and revise again


Small and Medium Businesses Particularly Vulnerable

Like it or not, small and medium-sized businesses are more susceptible to catastrophic data loss. Not because they’re necessarily unprepared for a disaster, but because they’re inappropriately prepared.

And it’s not all about fires and tornados, either. A simple errant keystroke could lead to the introduction of a virus or worm, in turn, leading to the corruption or deletion of thousands of files.

Limited budgets often mean businesses are coming up with insufficient ways to keep their data stored—if they’re storing it at all. External hard drives, USB/flash memory sticks, and even CDs and DVDs are just some of the ways that small and medium businesses are storing data. The obvious problems with these “solutions” is that few—if any—are satisfactory methods should a disaster occur.
