It is not a matter if a disaster will strike but when it will strike. Ransomware attacks, phishing, password attacks, weather, or other types of disasters can shut down or severely impact the backbone of your business – information technology (IT). Most organizations have an IT disaster recovery (DR) plan in place; however, the plan may not provide the anticipated results when a disaster occurs.

Implementing a BCM program can decrease downtime, lower recovery costs, and lessen data losses when a disaster occurs. It can also keep your most valuable resource – client confidence and data – from impact. Since over 40% of businesses never recover from a disaster, having a BCM program in place will make sure your organization does not become part of the statistic. Dewpoint consultants can help you design and implement a disaster recovery plan or entire BCM program. In addition, they can provide an independent review of your current plan to identify gaps and decrease risk. So contact Dewpoint today before disaster strikes.
