Today, business moves quickly and the last thing you want is an IT disaster. Therefore, every business, no matter what size, should have an actionable disaster recovery plan.
Disasters come in all shapes and sizes; some can be mitigated easily, some can be prevented entirely, and some can be so severe that recovery can be impossible – unless, of course, you have a solid business continuity protocol in place.
Potential disasters include:
– System failures
– Hacking or theft
– Ransomware attacks
– Virus infection
– Intentional or unintentional file corruption or deletion
– Floods, lightning storms or other devastating weather incidents
– Structural failure
– Power outages or surges
– Acts of war or terror
The purpose of a disaster recovery plan is to minimize downtime and protect the loss of vital data. A recovery plan aims to get you back up and running as quickly as possible.
Also known as a business continuity plan, your disaster recovery protocols should include company-specific templates that will help:
– Protect your employees
– Continue business operations
– Manage and mitigate the incident
– Recover from any losses
Protecting your data in The Cloud
While protecting your employees and property are paramount, protecting your data is vital need unto itself.
If your company’s data only exists on on-site servers or computers within your office, you may have little recourse in the event of an IT disaster. By migrating your business activity to the Cloud, your data will be accessible, even if your internal servers go-down. Furthermore, should the worst happen to your device or your physical office space, by storing your files remotely on the Cloud, you can get back to work with little disruption, from another secure location.
Is your company prepared?
A disaster recovery plan is like having insurance. You don’t want to use it, but if needed, you’ll be happy to have it!
It’s much more than just protecting your employees and physical assets; it’s about providing your customers with a seamless experience that includes uninterrupted access to your services. If you were to lose the ability to get back up and running in a timely manner, your clients may have to look elsewhere for service.
