No company is safe from disaster. For example, a ransomware attack, a fire, or an unplanned power outage can cause your small- or medium-sized business (SMB) to go offline and lose revenue. In order to protect your company from these unexpected events, it’s important to have a business continuity plan (BCP) in place.
