Business Continuity

Business continuity refers to the ability of an organization to maintain its core functions and processes in the event of a disruption, such as a natural disaster, cyber attack, or other crisis. The main features of business continuity include:

Risk assessment: The process of identifying and evaluating potential threats to the organization’s operations and critical functions.

Business impact analysis: The process of determining the potential consequences of a disruption to the organization, including the financial, operational, and reputational impact.

Continuity planning: The development of a plan that outlines how the organization will respond to and recover from a disruption. This plan should include procedures for communication, evacuation, and recovery of critical systems and data.

Testing and exercises: Regular testing and exercising of the continuity plan to ensure that it is effective and to identify any areas for improvement.

Maintenance and updates: Ongoing maintenance and updates to the continuity plan to ensure it remains relevant and effective in the face of changing risks and threats.

Did you know that Cloud services need to be backed up? Many people don’t realise that content in Microsoft 365 and other SaaS platforms need to be backed up to a different provider in order to achieve protection from data loss.

Datto SaaS Protection Protects Email, OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams, Gmail, Google Contacts and more with 3x daily, automated backups or perform additional backups as needed, at any time.

Flexible restore options allow recovery of lost data quickly, while retaining file and folder structure in Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace (formerly G Suite).


It’s important to understand the importance of backing up all data, including data stored in cloud platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. Data is a valuable asset for any organisation, and losing it can have significant consequences.

Here are a few reasons why backing up data is crucial:

Protect against data loss: Data loss can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as hardware failure, cyber attacks, or natural disasters. Having a backup of your data ensures that you can recover it in the event of a loss, minimizing the impact on your business operations.

Compliance: Depending on your industry, you may be required to comply with regulations that mandate the protection and storage of data. Backing up your data helps ensure that you meet these requirements.

Cost savings: Losing data can be expensive, and the cost of data recovery and restoration can far outweigh the cost of implementing a backup solution. Regularly backing up your data can save you time and money in the long run.

Business continuity: Data is critical to the operations of your business, and losing it can result in significant disruptions. Having a backup of your data enables you to continue your operations, even in the event of a disaster.

In conclusion, backing up all data, including data stored in cloud platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, is an important aspect of protecting your organisation’s valuable assets and ensuring business continuity.
