How The One Point will help?
The One Point will help you produce your disaster plan. We will help reduce the impact of disasters on your people, customers and stakeholders and ensure your business can continue to operate in the event of a disaster or unexpected interruption to help you avoid long term losses and maintain customer contact.
Disaster recovery plans exist to help an organisation recover from a disaster and get back to normal. Meanwhile, business continuity plans help organisations stay in operation following an unexpected business interruption.
Typically, senior management, IT staff, and representatives from other key departments will be involved in developing the plan ideally alongside a consultancy service such as The One Point with expertise in helping businesses plan for the unexpected. The plan should include roles and responsibilities for all individuals involved in its implementation.
Typically, they include an overview of the organisation, its systems and processes, contact information for key personnel, and steps for recovering from a disaster or continuing operations in the event of an interruption, such as who is responsible for what, how to communicate with employees and customers, and what resources are needed.
The One Point offers various services to help organisations develop and implement effective DR and BC plans, including consultancy, training, and software tools. We can help you reduce the impact of disasters on your people, customers, and stakeholders and ensure your business can continue to operate in a disaster.
DR and BC plans should be updated regularly to remain relevant and practical. Typically, a management team should make updates at least once a year or whenever significant changes to the organisation's structure or operations, such as changes to key staff members.
Organisations that don't have a DR or BC plan are at a significant disadvantage. They are more likely to experience downtime, loss of data and negatively impact customers and employees in a disaster. In addition, they may be subject to fines and other penalties from regulatory agencies. They may have saved money in the short term, but their lack of planning may leave them worse off in the long run.
