Top Ten IT Considerations for Remote Working Readiness

 

You likely have Business Continuity plans in place to deal with various scenarios such as mass transit incidents, data centre outages, building incidents and maybe even epidemics which impact a percentage of staff.

 

Have you considered plans for a pandemic which has the potential for all employees in a location or perhaps country needing to be isolated from congregating and forced to work remotely indefinitely?

 

Traditional plans typically address a disaster affecting one location and often plan for only critical employees being enabled to work. This may include them working from a different office, leveraging colocation facilities or working from home. These approaches work for isolated incidents and are often based on relatively short-term scenarios targeted at fewer individuals.

 

In the event of a pandemic everything changes. Leveraging our extensive experience in business continuity planning, remote working scenarios and the creation of cloud based virtual infrastructure, we have created this guide with the top 10 considerations for effectively implementing extended remote working scenarios.
