Business Continuity Planning
Utilise Covenco365’s business continuity planning and consultancy services to assist you in developing optimal business continuity and disaster recovery strategies for your organisation.
The escalating amounts and complexity of cyber/ransomware attacks means that businesses are far more susceptible to be hit, and the cost of downtime that is caused by such disasters is far too high to risk to be having gaps in your business continuity plan.
This reiterates the fact that business continuity planning is an important part of any responsible business management. It preserves the value of the business in the face of major operational disruption. To avoid unacceptable losses in these circumstances, recovery and restoration of core activities must take place within days or even hours.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is business continuity?
Business continuity is the process that an organisation puts in place to ensure that business critical operations can continue during some kind of disruption or disaster.
Why do I need a business continuity plan?
To have a business continuity plan in place is likely to minimise any downtime and will preserve the value of the business in the face of major operational disruption.
What is the difference between business continuity and disaster recovery?
Business continuity refers to business operations and keeping it up and running in the event of disaster, whereas disaster recovery is focused on recovering the business data and IT infrastructure when disaster strikes. They are both important practices to put in place in order to be sufficiently prepared for a disaster or disruption occurring.
What is High Availability?
High Availability is a service that is designed to minimise downtime. It refers to systems and solutions that are durable and which are likely to operate continuously, without failure for a long time. The term implies that a system has accommodations for failure in the form of redundant components and can recover from software or hardware failure automatically.
What is Data Backup?
Data Backup is a process that includes the copying and archiving of all essential business data and making it available in case of disaster or deletion.
