6 Ways You’ll Benefit from a Business Continuity Plan

Unfortunately, disasters aren’t going away. With man-made and natural disasters growing in frequency, backup and disaster recovery services with LNS Solutions are crucial to prevent business interruption. From weather-related events, fires and cyberattacks, companies that take the time to prepare a business continuity plan are better positioned to manage the fallout.

SMBs might look to managed service providers to take care of backups, hardware and software fixes, and network management during ordinary times. But what about when an unexpected event happens? Unfortunately, the unexpected is happening more and more, warranting the need more than ever for your business continuity plan in Tampa.

What You Risk Without a Data Backup and Recovery Plan in Place

No less than 60% of SMBs have to close their doors after a cyberattack, according to Inc., in part because they did not have the proper business continuity plan in place. A disaster of any type can cause:

- Downtime
- Business closure
- Expensive fines and penalties
- Loss of clients due to a hurt reputation
- Brand damage

The 6 Benefits of a Plan

A business disruption is far less stressful when there’s data backup and recovery and a plan in place to re-establish operations. Here are the top six ways a business continuity plan protects your business before, during and after an unexpected event:

1. A business continuity plan ensures your business keeps running smoothly
— A strategy helps you recover quickly after an incident

2. Operations are restarted promptly after a disruption
— A proactive plan in place ensures minimal impact and re-establishes workflow

3. A business continuity plan shortens the length of the disruption
— A plan in place means your processes will function properly, sooner

4. Your reputation stays intact when you can weather a disruption
— Your brand remains competitive

5. You’ll dodge costly fees and penalties while improving compliance
— Our compliance services keep you up to date and fine-free

6. Reduce risks to your employees and clients
— Your clients and employees know their data is safeguarded

What to Consider

First, your business continuity plan should remain current. LNS Solutions makes sure your plan is updated regularly and stays in compliance, no matter how the regulations have changed.

Second, regulations, requirements and cyberthreats all evolve on a daily basis. Your business continuity plan should, too. Check your plan regularly with tests that reflect the modern world against your current business needs.

Lastly, make sure your plan has considered every possible risk. A top-to-bottom assessment of your organization results in the appropriate plan that will ensure that your coverage is comprehensive, no matter what the risks are.
