How to Ensure Business Continuity With a Cloud Intranet
Ensure Business Continuity with a Cloud-Based Intranet
A company’s internal communication strategy is crucial for overall success. It must establish business objectives and new marketing campaigns clearly to all members in the corporate hierarchy so that everyone is in alignment.
What is a business continuity plan?
A business continuity plan is a set of procedures and instructions a company will enact during times of crisis in order to remain operational. Typical reasons a company would execute their business continuity plan include:
- Dramatic global market downturns driven by significant events ranging from terrorist acts to major economic policy changes.
- Civil unrest such as protests that affect a business’ day-to-day operations.
- Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornados, or wildfires that damage infrastructure or displace workers.
- Security threats such as ransomware that compromise business-critical data.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), anywhere from 40% to 60% of small businesses never reopen after a large-scale crisis. Therefore, having a plan in place during emergencies could literally save your business.
