In newer times many companies are impacted – and in certain cases even paralyzed – by the rapid rise of cyber threats. A large number of companies worldwide are hit, and millions are lost due to those companies not having an operational IT contingency plan. An IT contingency plan is the organization’s recovery strategy. The questions that arise are: What happens if we are hit? How does our chain of command work? And how does what? Do we even have an operational IT contingency plan?
During the past two years we’ve seen staff being sent home, replacements of hardware and countless breakdowns. Furthermore, we currently have a global hardware shortage, which comes with quite a challenge for companies that are impacted, as the need to be very precise in knowing how to get back online with their internal systems is alfa omega. Such a plan will prepare you for the modern world threat picture.
So, do you wonder if your business is IT bulletproof?
Securing your uptime and data
We specialize in data, and our main focus when working with our customers is to secure their data with a high quality. any.cloud is a fully ISO27001 accredited company with a CSA Star and ISAE 3402 Type II certifications. We work not only in protecting your data, but also meeting your compliance demands. Data is the pillar of many companies, and downtime or attacks are not tolerated.
By having an IT contingency plan, all necessary procedures are in place and our services can take our business to where you are up again in practically no time. If you for example in your IT contingency plan include our Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), which is a 1:1 replica of your entire company infrastructure, you can continue your journey right away without any downtime – through our datacenters.
However, a Disaster Recovery solution can’t cut it alone. Whether your business is small or large, we strongly recommend having a contingency plan in case an attack strike. Our IT contingency plan includes risk assessment, safety precautions and a flowchart for emergency situations. In fact, it is pretty similar to emergency exits within buildings in case of fire or other disasters. It goes without saying that we test your contingency plan to make sure that all procedures and processes are clear and up to date. Prior to that, we analyze focus areas and needs that are specific to your business, because we want you to be prepared for whatever may come.
