Business Continuity Services
The concept of business continuity has become much more prevalent today than in previous years, simply because there are many more points of failure due to the vast array of technology we heavily rely on each day.
What is at Risk?
According to disastersafety.org, 25% of businesses do not reopen following a major event. However, even minor disruptions can cause significant damage to your business if you don’t have a business continuity plan in place. Hackers are targeting businesses of all sizes and small businesses, in particular, are at risk of security threats to their network.

If you want to maximize your chances of a quick recovery while minimizing your losses, it can pay dividends to invest company resources into developing a business continuity plan.
According to Gartner analyst David Willis, over 60% of employees globally say they’ve used a personal device at work, and Gartner predicts that nearly 40% of companies will go completely BYOD by 2016.
With the rising trend of BYOD, it’s becoming the rule, rather than the exception in today’s workplace.
While BYOD is a great convenience to your employees, you need to consider how it will affect your network security before fully adopting it into your workplace.
