UK small businesses are failing when it comes to business continuity
Research conducted by Databarracks has revealed a significant disparity between organizations’ attitudes and approaches to business continuity and disaster recovery. The findings indicate that while medium and large organizations are confidently implementing business continuity plans, small organizations are putting themselves at risk by failing to follow suit.
The findings are part of Databarracks’ fifth annual Data Health Check report, which surveys over 400 IT professionals in the UK on the changing ways in which technology is used by businesses today.
The results revealed that only 30 percent of small organizations had a business continuity plan in place, compared with 54 percent of medium and 73 percent of large businesses. Perhaps even more concerning is that when asked if the organization intended to implement a BCP in the next 12 months, over 40 percent of small organizations had no intention to do so.
