How would your business cope in the event of a fire, theft or other unforeseen events?

It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of thinking that it won’t happen to you which, of course, we sincerely hope is the case.

Unfortunately, however, these things can and indeed do happen from time to time. Therefore it’s vital that your business has a plan of action so that, in a worst case scenario, all won’t be lost and the business will be able to continue to operate and recover.

At Sabre ICT we’re experts in developing and managing business continuity and disaster recovery plans that suit the needs of your business and are robust enough to ensure that as, coffee mugs and t-shirts the world over like to say, you can KEEP CALM & CARRY ON.

A well planned and effective business continuity plan is not only an appropriate response should the worst happen to your business. It can also work as a reminder to implement best practices on a daily basis when it comes to the safety and security of your workplace and, from a compliance point of view, it demonstrates to the authorities that you take the safety and integrity of your business seriously; which can have positive cost benefits on issues such as insurance premiums and legal fees.

Things to Consider

When we put together a business continuity plan there are certain things that we need to consider so that the appropriate action can be taken in the unlikely event of disaster striking.

Alternative Place of Work

Should your offices become inaccessible or seriously damaged, maybe through a flood or fire, what contingency could you have in place to continue operating? It might be that you have other offices that can utilised or perhaps your work has the facility for employees to work from home.  Whatever the answer may be, making sure you have this in place as part of your plan demonstrates professional forethought and due diligence in the care of your business.

Equipment Concerns

Do you have hardware and equipment that can be used from other locations, backup devices perhaps at other facilities that can be called upon when in times of need? Again, by working with experts in disaster recovery and business continuity we can assist with plans to ensure you have workable equipment quickly after the incident.

Where is your data?

As an I.T. support business we’re all too aware of how critical it is for a business that its data and documents are not lost. Thankfully, working with Sabre ICT you’ll have access to a thoroughly comprehensive range of solutions to ensure that all business critical information is backed up and retrievable in the event of a disaster.
