Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Nobody can predict the next crisis, but you can be prepared for it.

Businesses can suffer disruptions from weather, power outages, and political events or as very recently demonstrated by virus outbreaks.

By having a robust Business Continuity Plan and Disaster Recovery Plan in place you are ensuring that your users and facilities can continue to operate even when things are not going right.

Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery are often used in a single sentence; however there is a difference between the two.

  • A BC plan allows business to plan in advance what it needs to do to ensure its key products and services continue to be delivered in case of a disaster
  • A DR allows a business to plan what needs to be done immediately after a disaster to recover from the event

Net Defence can work with you on both of these scenarios through consultancy to help build your BC and DR plan to suit your business. Implementing these is the most comprehensive way to ensure your business returns to ‘business as usual’ as quickly as possible in the event of any disruption.

To validate the plans and identify any remaining gaps, Net Defence will also help you test both these plans by performing a simulation or walk through drill of a possible disaster scenario and assist in the awareness training of all staff to ensure they know what procedures to deploy in any given situation.

By demonstrating your commitment to maintaining excellent service in times of disruption you are on your way to proving you have the necessary steps in place to start the process of ISO 22301 certification which is internationally recognised for business continuity.  Net Defence can also guide you through this process if you want to enhance your profile.


Penalties for non-compliance can be up to 4 persent of annual turnover for an organisation.
