Coronavirus : Business Continuity & remote working requires Cybersecurity

In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, remote working has become the most widely implemented action to enable business continuity in our growingly service-oriented world. In consequence, the enterprises are opening more doors, tunnels and vulnerabilities to enable the information flow between the corporate datacenter and remote workers.

During this difficult period where enterprises are mainly focused on their survival, and where security is considered as a low priority topic, the frequency of cyber-attacks exploiting various vulnerabilities is increasing at an exponential rate. These attacks, coupled with the capacity limits of national, regional and worldwide technical infrastructures are seriously shaking the fundamentals of security in terms of information confidentiality, integrity and business continuity.

More than ever, the convergence of Business Continuity and Information Security is becoming a must to implement, in order to reduce the financial, operational, legal and reputational impacts of the cyber-threats.

Willing to share its expertise, ACTAGIS proposes some key security recommendations for remote working that will help you to strengthen the continuity of your activities.

Coronavirus is seriously impacting businesses

Boosted by accelerated global exchanges, the Coronavirus is spreading very rapidly, with large scale effects also in Europe and Switzerland. Thanks to the widely developed healthcare system in these zones, we can imagine that the propagation of the virus will be decelerated. But, in the meantime, businesses have already begun to suffer from the pandemic situation. Experts in macroeconomy predict the gross domestic product (GDP) of the European zone to fall due to the direct and indirect impacts caused by the Coronavirus.

Business Continuity & the Coronavirus

Even if the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) should naturally be embedded in a normal business practice, most of the time only large enterprises have implemented it at a companywide level, leaving the small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) unprepared for such pandemic situations. According to the official 2019 statistics published by the Swiss government, 99% of economic power is based on SMEs, making the vast majority of businesses highly vulnerable to the Coronavirus.

In the context of such a pandemic crisis, SMEs should be prepared to cope with the major disruptions related to the availability of human resources, supply chains, market demands for products and services, business travel, treasury and cash-flow. Failure to activate prepared solutions for such scenarios can have major consequences for the enterprises’ survival.

ACTAGIS provides below a helpful guide for a pandemic plan that SMEs can apply in order to get ready, by implementing adequate measures enabling their continuity in the case of a pandemic situation.

“One of the major mistakes is, as you can imagine, not to be prepared, not to have a plan, not to test the plan. Because for all these steps, you need time,” said Jeff Primus, CEO of consulting firm ACTAGIS.
