Protecting your business is a must in today's climate. Your customers rely on you for business-critical services, because when you're down, so are they. For this reason, business continuity should be automatically wrapped into every solution you use internally and sell to clients.
Although most people think of natural disasters when they think of business continuity, other threats like cyberattacks can be just as problematic. You might be in the least likely place to experience a natural disaster, but no practice is impervious to Internet-borne attacks.
According to a 2017 [Datto survey](https://www.datto.com/resources/ch-ransomware-survey-17) of 1,700 MSPs, 75% of MSPs said that at least one of their clients experienced business-threatening downtime due to ransomware alone. When you factor in all the other things that can take a network down, business continuity solutions begin to feel more like an insurance policy than merely an added cost.
**5 core benefits of business continuity:**
1. The impact of business disruptions is minimized
2. Financial risks fall
3. An organization's reputation becomes easier to manage and protect
4. It becomes easier to meet legal and compliance requirements
5. Organizational resilience grows
