Top 10 business continuity disasters over last 12 months revealed by IT Specialists

Whether it was a fire that brought a halt to a bustling city centre, structural damage to a bridge that diverted 80,000 commuters daily or a 106 mph storm that disrupted 130 flights, the last 12 months had its share of incidents that kept businesses on their toes and put their revenue at risk.

As part of the Business Continuity Institute’s Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) 2016, managed service provider IT Specialists (ITS) put together research highlighting some of the biggest threats to business continuity over the last 12 months.

BCAW, which ran from 16-20 May, was designed to raise awareness about business continuity and resilience following both high-profile and smaller incidents that threaten businesses.

As a managed service provider itself, ITS offers a number of services that protect its clients in the face of major upheaval, including business continuity, IT support, field service and outsourced service desk.

The company compiled this research to help businesses understand the types of incidents that could affect them. Without a thorough business continuity programme, there’s a risk of negative consequences such as lost inventory, reduced productivity due to employees being unable to work remotely, property damage and the all-important revenue loss.

ITS’ goal is to help businesses mitigate the impact of business interruptions with its business continuity solutions, which include BlackVault Managed Recovery Platform, a fully managed disaster recovery as a service platform using a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

“Investing in forward planning can save valuable time, protect an organisation’s revenue and preserve its customer base,” said Matt Kingswood, UK head of ITS.

“We urge businesses to formulate a business continuity programme to identify inefficient processes that cost the organisation money on a daily basis and can prove a barrier to disaster recovery.”
