Disaster Recovery

Business concept: Recovery key on the co

Disaster Recovery involves ​preparation of policies, procedures, and tools to safeguard the continuity of your business in the event of a disaster. The premise behind disaster recovery planning is two-fold. First and foremost, planning for the absence and/or destruction of a physical location and the preservation of valuable data. Second, the ability to not only safeguard your data, but also continue your business and retain your the ability to service your clientele. 

It's easy to associate a disaster to most commonly known catastrophes, such as hurricanes, tornado's, etc. It's important to realize that disasters come in many flavors, which are not necessarily the most common ones to make the news. For example, something as simple as a fire, theft, or a disgruntled employee can represent a potential disaster for any business.

More than 40% of small businesses will not be able to re-open after a disaster, and among those that do, an additional 25% will fail within the first year after the crisis. Disaster recovery planning can drastically reduce the risk associated to a disaster.

The only way to mitigate this is to strategize, plan, and deploy adequate technology, along with continuous testing. Continuous off-premise backups of data is a critical component to disaster recovery planning. However, a backup and recovery process alone does not by any means constitute a disaster recovery plan.

The bottom line is that in today's tech dependent world being ready for the unexpected is key to surviving.
