ABERDEEN-based IT provider, IT Hotdesk, is set to hold a free webinar focusing on business continuity next Thursday, 24 June 2021.
As part of the company’s business insights campaign, designed to educate businesses on the importance of business continuity planning, the webinar ‘Preparing for the unexpected’ will delve into the importance of risk management, and how business continuity plans and business impact analysis can be fundamental to an organisation’s long-term success.
Managing director Gordon Christie comments, “It is perceived that the key to long-term success in business is the ability to serve your market and retain customers but what happens when something unforeseen happens that knocks your plans off-course. Having a robust business continuity plan can have a massive impact on whether or not objectives are met.
“Although COVID-19 is at the forefront of our minds these days, this is one of many events that have had an impact on business over the past few months. Cyber attacks, pandemics, flooding, fires and multiple storms highlight the need for businesses planning for the unknown and the requirement to have a plan to keep operations active during times of distress.”
Having already hosted a number of successful free webinars on hybrid working and cyber security, the company’s next webinar ‘Preparing for the unexpected’ is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 24th June at 10am.
Gordon continues, “Having an effective plan in place allows for an organisation to react quickly in the occurrence of unpredictable events, minimising any downtime and reducing the operational cost to the business.”
Covering topics such as risk mitigation, recovery management and network applications, the event is suitable for businesses of all sizes and sectors.
