Business Continuity Planning

According to the Department of Trade & Industry, 70% of companies that encounter a significant loss of data go out of business within a year. This simple fact shows just how important it is to have robust and well-defined disaster recovery and business continuity plans in place.

Disasters happen, and many companies have placed their trust in what they thought were adequate backups, only to find them deficient when it came to the crunch. Being unprepared in such situations can impose crippling costs on even the largest organisations, whether in the form of a disruption to operations, legal liability, or, very often, significant revenue loss.

We at TGT Technologies understand that a well-rounded backup regime is only part of the bigger picture; that no matter how well-planned and managed, sometimes backups alone are not enough. What you need is a fully fleshed-out plan for coping with all possible disaster scenarios – including how to prevent them.

A Consultative Approach to Disaster Recovery

TGT Technologies approaches the concept of business continuity and disaster recovery from the position of the client. Rather than providing disaster recovery services based upon generic best practices, we aim to understand the core critical failure points within your business. We then create a tailor-made plan for workplace recovery to counteract them.

If your business depends heavily on data – as most do – such a recovery plan can save you massive amounts of time and money should your business be affected by a cyber attack, equipment failure, or other risk to your operations.

We start with consultation. During this phase, we will work closely with primary stakeholders, identifying key failure points and mission critical systems upon which business continuity is dependent.

This fact-finding enables TGT Technologies to define exactly what is needed from a technology point of view, to keep your company operating at a bare minimum level in the event of disaster.

A Plan for Continued Operation

Taking what we have learned during the consultation phase, we will develop a business continuity plan that will provide everything required to keep your business functioning, should a worst-case scenario develop.

One of the key deliverables of the business continuity plan we develop is the segregation of critical systems from non-critical systems. In the event of a disaster, the goal is to keep the company operating, not to provide 100% service coverage for every application. This is the fundamental backbone of a solid plan: to provide the minimum level of required services to keep the company trading, but with a 100% success rate.

Your data is the lifeblood of your business. When a data disaster happens, the ability to quickly recover and retrieve lost files can be critical to your company’s future. With TGT Technologies disaster recovery and continuity, you can rest easy knowing that the most important functions and processes at your business will survive even  ‘worst-case scenario’ data loss. It’s this kind of security that helps you rest easy, even when your business is at its most vulnerable.
