User Safety is Key to Business Continuity Planning
Many enterprises have comprehensive business continuity plans to ensure key systems survive a crisis. But protecting equipment and data is not enough… you also need a plan for reducing potential risk for employees, guests, and customers when the doors to your business reopen.
The recent Covid-19 pandemic has created a new norm where “user continuity” has become a top IT initiative in support of new business continuity plans. More specifically, IT departments are taking the lead in helping their businesses address key questions like:
- If someone has identified themselves as positive for a virus (or exhibiting symptoms), with whom did they recently come in contact?
- What areas within the office campus did they visit? How long were they there?
- Are there certain areas on campus (i.e. “hot zones”) that are more susceptible to spreading a virus?
- Can proactive actions be taken to prevent unnecessary contact?
