The Importance of Backup and Disaster Recovery

More than likely, you have spent years building up your successful business. If a disaster strikes, you could lose everything you have worked for in the blink of an eye, unless you have a disaster recovery plan in place. Yet many companies view disaster recovery  as an unnecessary cost; however, one should consider the total cost of ownership of lost data to your business.

According to StorageCraft, the survival rate for businesses without a disaster recovery plan is less than 10 percent. In order to prevent this, it is important to have a business continuity plan in place. There are a number of steps you can take to ensure your information is completely safe.

Plan. First and foremost, you need to develop and implement a disaster recovery plan that works for you. This plan will lay out exactly how information will be recovered and restored in the event of a disaster.

Store off site. Think of this as a vault where your important information is stored. This could be on a tape, hard drive, or an offsite backup facility that’s highly equipped to meet your needs.

Backup regularly. Take a couple minutes out of your day and get into a routine where you are sure to archive information—you won’t regret it. This can be done either periodically, or at the end of each workday.
