The cybersecurity of your business and network isn’t only about protecting your network and data from cyber-criminals. It also includes the planning and preparation you make to ensure your business continues to exist and can resume normal operations within a reasonably short period after a disaster such as flood, fire, widespread power outage, or intentional/unintentional human involvement.
Buildings can be rebuilt – equipment can be replaced or repaired – utilities can be restored. But data ceases to exist once it is destroyed. Therefore, in every Business Continuity Plan, it is imperative that strategies be in place to prevent that from happening no matter what the crisis.
At Access Technologies, our passion is solving puzzles. We love to take the technological problems your business is facing – such as business continuity – and put the pieces together to build a technological solution. We take the time to understand your business and your processes, and work with you to address the three key elements of your business continuity plan:
- Resilience: Critical business functions and the supporting infrastructure must be designed in such a way that they are materially unaffected by relevant disruptions, for example using redundancy and spare capacity.
Our certified network engineers can make sure that your servers have the proper redundancy to keep your data safe. We can also work with you on developing on-site and off-site data back-up strategies, using Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) and surge protection, and transitioning to the secure Cloud so you needn’t worry about local disasters affecting your technology.
- Recovery: Arrangements must be made to recover or restore critical and less critical business functions that fail for some reason.
We offer Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) with the expertise you need to get your data restored and your systems up and running as soon as possible.
- Contingency: The organization establishes a generalized capability and readiness to cope effectively with whatever major incidents and disasters occur, including those that were not, and perhaps could not have been, foreseen.
Contingency is usually a “last resort.” However, should the need arise, Access Technologies can help you dismantle your systems and move to a Cold Site, equip a Warm Site with the necessary technology infrastructure, or create a Hot Site which completely duplicates your current system and data allowing you to continue business with minimal disruption.
