How would you cope if your computers crashed, or a key employee suddenly went sick or, worst case, you suffered a critical security breach?
At times of crisis, you need a structured plan- a disaster recovery protocol. And not just one- most businesses need several, to handle many possible problems which might arise in the future.
And they need to be good- the worst time to discover you’ve missed a critical step is when you’re already in the middle of chaos.
In order to do this effectively, it is necessary to understand the potential risk and disruption to your business that can occur at any time. Even if you are vigilant in your own business, are you 100% confident that your suppliers and service providers are doing the same?
This is where Business Continuity Management is essential. At Artemis we specialise in analysing, designing and managing all aspects of Business Continuity Management, and can create the processes you need to put in place. BCM allows you to calmly deal with business critical incidents in a timely and structured manner, ensuring minimal losses during a difficult time.
No matter how large or small your company, the importance of having a structured plan and set of rules to follow in the event of an incident is critical. More importantly, under the GDPR regulations (article 32 Security of Processing), it is necessary to show that you have taken all steps to secure client data. BCM is a major part of that process.
