Disaster Recovery: How to Prepare Your Business & Maintain Continuity
Does your business have a disaster recovery plan in place? If not, now is the time. We define disaster recovery as having secondary technology, plan procedures, and trained personnel already in place and ready to respond to any potential, future, work-stopping event. When it comes to disaster planning, we certainly hope a disaster doesn’t happen to us. However, we tend to get comfortable when things aren’t breaking. As a result, we don’t plan for any unexpected events in the future or set up the necessary fall-back procedures.
However, being proactive is the key to successfully planning for the future and setting your business up for success no matter what happens. For example, there are a number of disasters that can impact your business, including:
- Internet outages
- Hardware failure
- Software corruption
- Ransomware/cyber attack
- Power outages
- Natural disaster
So, how would your business handle one of these events if it happened to you? If your answer is, “I don’t know,” it’s time we change that. If an unexpected event like one of the above does hit your business, you’ll need to reduce downtime to reduce any potential losses. And a disaster recovery strategy is the way to do this.
In this webinar, James Fair, Executech’s SVP of Technical Operations, will discuss what a disaster recovery plan is and what you should include in your own. Check it out for more information on backups, redundancy, replication, and more!
