Without business continuity and disaster recovery plans, you risk losing everything when disaster hits. These measures protect your business’s data and allow you to continue doing business even when the unexpected occurs.
Because business continuity and disaster recovery are so closely related, they’re often thought of as the same thing. However, they’re actually two different processes. Business continuity gets your entire organization up and running after a crisis, while disaster recovery focuses on essential business functions.
What you plan on backing up is also a key component of your plan. We’ll help you determine what data you need to backup and how long of a data retention period your business requires.
A recovery based on information that is an hour old will cost more than one from yesterday, but the price tag should not be the only factor in your decision-making process. You also need to think about what you will lose if you cannot access your data or experience a significant amount of downtime.
We can help you understand the costs of downtime and the differences between business continuity and disaster recovery. Then we will work with you to craft a plan that maximizes uptime and protects your operations. We do this through proven disaster recovery systems that minimize downtime in the case of cyberattacks, natural disasters or employee mistakes.
This goes beyond a generic plan and, instead, is a strategy tailored to your business that mitigates risk. We do not backup to a single destination. Just because your information is in the cloud doesn’t mean it is 100% safe. We can provide on- and off-site backups, as well as backups with other cloud vendors so there is never a single point of failure.
