While it may not have been critical at the beginning of the year, business continuity planning (BCP) has become a top priority for organizations everywhere. The coronavirus forced a massive shift in IT strategies while also altering how and where we work. While many organizations developed these plans on the fly to keep their employees secure, engaged, and productive during a pandemic, they can become part of a long-term strategy to support remote work. These plans can be activated anytime, whether you’re facing a weather, geopolitical, or health and safety event, or just improving employee experience. The first step in many BCPs is to determine how to keep employees productive by providing them with access to their mission-critical apps and files. The next, and equally as important, step is to keep the data in those apps and files secure.
