Why now is the time to implement your Business Continuity Plan

Cast your mind back to March 2020. World leaders announced enforcements of lockdowns worldwide to combat the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, many businesses in the industry have now adopted a new remote working strategy as part of their business continuity plan. Moreover, it is projected that by the end of 2021, 25-30% of all businesses will likely have transitioned to a remote-working approach.

As we come to the end of 2020, a second lockdown has come into force across much of Europe. Additionally, many countries outside Europe are looking to follow suit. As a result, business leaders are now placing an even higher priority on their business continuity plans.

They are taking steps to safeguard their data and procedures. For example, they are reviewing their business processes, critical assets, supply chains, business partnerships, remote access, and disaster recovery measures as a priority to find ways that business can continue as normal.

Why do managed services need to be a part of your business continuity plan?
