Business Continuity Planning

Backup-and-Disaster-Recovery-icon

Over 90% of accounting firms and CPA’s will experience a technology disaster at some point.

Let’s face it, if your technology and IT is down for days or your data isn’t accessible (or worse,  lost) your accounting firm may not be toast, but life for a few days will definitely be less than ideal.

To avoid the stress, negative PR impact, and tears, your business disaster recovery plan should evolve with your growth, assuming you have one. A business disaster recovery strategy (BDR for short) is a define and documented process that aligns your team on the same page so you’re prepared to handle the unexpected (and unwanted) challenges.

The goal for any business, especially in a digital age, should be to develop a business recovery plan that covers you in the event of a disaster.

Here’s some of the components of a good business disaster recovery plan.
