RETHINKING SMB BUSINESS CONTINUITY IN 2020
ON-DEMAND VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE
More than 70% of SMBs experienced at least one outage in the past year - yet nearly a quarter of companies never test their disaster recovery plan, if they have one, according to a 2018 study. As the world becomes more and more digital by the day, the importance of business data and applications, as well as continuity in digital operations, is skyrocketing - all while the strain on your company’s network climbs. Even after the threat of COVID-19 subsides, telecommuting, remote learning and other internet-based interactions will continue to be common, so we must prepare for this new normal.
For small and medium businesses, now is a critical time to reevaluate your business continuity strategy, including your IT environment setup and the disaster recovery plan in case of a cyber security attack, natural disaster or human error. Ask yourself:
- Is the best strategy moving forward, from a business continuity perspective, to build or buy?
- How will the company stay up and running in the event of a disaster?
- How will you educate your team on disaster preparedness?
- How would you resume normal business practices after a disaster?
This virtual roundtable will offer a roadmap for how to think through your business continuity strategy, addressing topics such as redundancy, geographic diversity, the speed and accuracy of restoration, disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) and more. If you work for an SMB, regardless of vertical (telecom / technology, healthcare, financial services, education, law, gaming and more), this conversation could help you avoid an IT disaster.
