IT contingency plan in a business context

IT contingency plan in a business context

In 2017, a lot of companies were impacted – and in certain cases even paralysed – by the ransomwares WannaCry, Petya and NotPetya which spread across more than 150 countries.

A large number of Danish companies were hit, and millions were lost due to those companies not having an operational IT contingency plan. What happens, if we are hit? How does our chain of command work? And who does what?

During the summer of 2017, we saw people running around in circles, staff being sent home from work and businesses who had to replace all their hardware. Chances are that it would never have come to that, if an IT contingency plan had been in place for those businesses.

Securing your uptime and data

We specialise in data, and our main focus when working with our customers is always to secure their data. Most businesses of today are based on data, and downtime or attacks are not tolerated.

By having an IT contingency plan, all necessary procedures are in place and our services can take your business to where you are up again in practically no time. With our Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), which is a 1:1 replica of your entire company infrastructure, you can continue your journey right away without any downtime – through our datacentres.

But a Disaster Recovery Solution can’t cut it alone. Whether your business is small or large, we strongly recommend having a contingency plan in case an attack strikes. Our IT contingency plan includes risk assessment, safety precautions and a flowchart for emergency situations. In fact, it is pretty similar to what you find for buildings to point to emergency exits in case of fires or other disasters. It goes without saying that we test your contingency plan to make sure that all procedures and processes are absolutely clear. Prior to that, we analyse focus areas and needs that are specific to your business, because we want you to be prepared for whatever may come.
