Every business should have a Business Continuity plan in place. To clarify, a plan will help protect your data and your reputation should the worst happen. Also, planning gives you a framework to ensure you are back up and running as quickly as possible. Therefore if you don't think your business could operate if you had an unexpected disaster such as a fire or a flood, then contact us. We will create a plan of action with you on how your staff will operate in times of crisis. Finally, ensure you have a backup of all your data should the worse happen or devices are lost of stolen.

Business Continuity during COVID
The current COVID-19 restrictions are testing the business continuity plans of many of our clients. GNC Technology staff help clients maintain their connectivity to their customers, suppliers and staff. We ensure that staff working from home are doing so safely, particularly the ones using their own computers and laptops as well as mobiles. By adding encryption and/or anti-virus software to the hardware, staff who do have access to company information have uninterrupted access and all the information they need. Contact us if you are experiencing any issues around staff working from home or in managing your online presence. We have also worked on many Data Migration projects which has allowed staff to work from anywhere and access all their data online.
