Respond Effectively to COVID-19
IT departments must take the lead on pandemic response planning.
Implement Crisis Management Best Practices
Implement an effective crisis response plan to minimize the impact on business continuity
The most important thing you can do is communicate to internal and external stakeholders. Be transparent and communicate clearly and frequently. Pre-plan for this likely crisis to improve your ability to respond to a pandemic and implement a structure that can be applied to a wide range of other potential crises.
Pandemic planning involves more than technology. Addressing employee concerns and absences, temporary work arrangements and process changes, health and safety, and other downstream effects of a pandemic can be difficult to work through. Equip managers and employees with the necessary information and guidance to navigate these uncertain times.
Business Continuity Plan
If you don’t have a BCP, you should get one in a hurry. If you have one, we can review it with you. We’ll help you streamline the traditional approach to make BCP development manageable and repeatable.
Disaster Recovery Plan
You’ll need it for a pandemic scenario if mass absenteeism is going to bring your business to a screeching halt. Cost-effective DR and service continuity starts with identifying what is truly mission critical so you can focus resources accordingly.
Make sure your network is ready for the crushing demand that remote workers will put on internet bandwidth and network and VPN infrastructure. This is the time to solidify the business case for your network modernization project by demonstrating and quantifying the hard dollar value it provides to the business, which in the case of a pandemic response can be the difference between weathering the storm and sinking the ship.
