When disaster strucks, when your business is under attack and when things are escalating out of control, you need to know that there is a Plan B, and someone who is ready, able and willing to execute it at the shortest notice available.
Our computer dependent life, is always at risk, especially of a major disaster or failure. Anticipating risks like this and planning ahead is something that modern businesses can not afford to ignore any more.
Some times the attack is not obvious and you will need to ask the following questions:
a Is my business under attack? a Has my computer being hacked? a Has my business being hacked?
If your business suffers a major IT attack or disaster, there is an 1 in 2 chances that it will never recover.
You can change these odds to your favor, by having contingency plans, and an Incident Management Plan (IMP) in place.
The IMP will ensure your business continuity, will reduce the cost of recovery and the exposure to market pressures, lawsuits etc.
An IMP will also ensure that the amount of decisions you will have to make will be dramatically reduced, as the major part of the recovery, and dealing with the damage or threat will be delegated to experts.
