Backup and disaster recovery – having a plan to restore your company’s technology following some sort of catastrophic event – is something most owners and executives don’t think about until a hurricane or other major event. Most of us don’t imagine that we are suddenly going to lose all of our customer records, past vacations, and work files on a Wednesday afternoon unless there is some sort of flood, tornado, or other calamity.
And that, in a nutshell, is why more companies don’t get the protection they really need.
Allow us to explain: Although the biggest disasters make the news, there are dozens of smaller “disasters” that can easily ruin your company’s technology. These include small fires, vandalism, theft from outside your walls, and simple user error by you or your employees. Even though the chances of any one of these taking place might be small, the odds that you’ll eventually experience at least one of them overwhelmingly strong.
For that reason, it’s important to have a strong backup and disaster recovery plan in place. Even though you might be on the lookout for the next tragedy, it takes something a lot smaller to wipe out your technology and put the future of your business in jeopardy.
