In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, every company needs to have a proper business continuity plan in place. Many companies and schools have already closed their doors, as employees and students attend meetings & classes remotely. Large events have been canceled, and commuting on crowded public transit has been discouraged. Is your business set-up to cope with these major changes?
Of course, every good plan needs a checklist. Answer the questions below to determine what you will need for your company to thrive in the event of a temporary office closure.
Any of the above protocol will require the help of an experienced tech team. OnsiteIn60’s IT Contingency Checklist can help you get started on your contingency plan and protocol, so that you’re prepared for when a shutdown occurs. COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere any time soon. In fact, the goal of “social distancing” is just to slow the rate of infection, and to prevent healthcare facilities from being completely overwhelmed with cases all at once. With that in mind, spreading out the number of new cases over the next several months or years could mean extended workplace disruption. It makes sense to plan for both the short and long-term when it comes to data backups, cloud services, and managing a remote workforce.
Remember, snowstorms and hurricanes can also cause unexpected disruptions in business continuity, so a contingency plan is always relevant. If you have any further questions, go to our website and check out our Ask-A-CTO page.
