Protect your business this winter

UK businesses are putting their future at risk by failing to have a comprehensive business continuity plan in place. With bad weather being predicted by the Met Office this winter, disaster recovery planning should be revisited to ensure your business is fully protected.

Floods, wind and other weather related damage could cause significant disruption to a business’ day-to-day operations, from which some may never recover. Luckily, the threat of natural disasters is relatively low in the UK. However, the weather seen in the latter part of 2013 and early 2014 proves that UK businesses are not immune to disaster, and a comprehensive DR plan should always be in place.

However, like many tasks that don't seem urgent until they are needed, creating a comprehensive DR plan is often delayed in favour of completing other tasks. At Redstor we understand the effort that goes into disaster recovery planning and that there often just aren’t enough hours in the day. This is why we have decided to help, by creating a DR template, which you can download and easily use to help create a comprehensive DR plan for your business.
