 It is important to have a business continuity plan in case of unexpected emergency situations that may arise such as a pandemic, power outages, flooding, and fire. An important consideration for businesses is that a company may not be able to sustain normal business operations onsite physically at their facilities. The ability to support employees remotely then becomes essential to ensure business continuity and security.

In the last 3 to 4 months many organizations have rushed to set up their remote workforces due to the Coronavirus, with little time to plan and test solutions that optimize; access to business systems & performance, information protection & security, employee safety & productivity.

All organizations impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic should have a business continuity plan that addresses the above areas of concern to help them successfully navigate through these dangerous pandemic times with no end point in the near future.

Below are 3 of the main business continuity remote workforce areas that many small & medium sized businesses should be aware of that specifically address preparing your company to weather the current pandemic we are all living with today.
