2020 if off to a wild start. Canadian pipeline protests forced rail networks to shut down. The United Kingdom saw two major storms in the space of a week, causing flooding and property damage across the country. Australia is even still recovering from a major bushfire that destroyed thousands of buildings and burned almost 46 million acres of land.
The unexpected happens all the time, and if your business isn’t ready, it can spell real trouble for your future. Whether it’s a loss of staff, travel disruptions, data loss, hacking, or even a natural disaster that makes it near impossible for you to continue operations, an unexpected turn of events can end an unprepared business overnight.
What Should Your Business Prepare for in 2020?
Nobody can predict what’s going to happen this year, but we can analyse trends.
Data protection and cybersecurity have become two of the most important considerations for businesses across every industry in recent years, and it will become even more relevant in 2020. A study from Accenture found that just 17% of global organisations are performing as “leaders” in cybersecurity, despite it being one of the biggest issues for companies as we enter the new decade.
As big players get better at protecting their data online, hackers have focused their attention on weaker targets; third-party vendors further down a better-protected company’s supply chain. This kind of cyber attack now accounts for 40% of security breaches worldwide.
In 2020, your company is at greater risk than ever from online hackers, and a good disaster recovery plan ensures that you are not only protected but prepared for the possibility of the worst happening.
Beyond data protection, natural disasters remain a very real possibility for companies in any country. Whether it’s a major storm, flooding, or even something as extreme as a bushfire, your business needs to be prepared.
