If your company has never thought about having a backup and disaster recovery plan for your business data, you need to ask yourself the following question: 'Would my company be negatively affected if it loses all of its data?'. If the answer is 'Yes,' then you need to look at a cost-effective solution to this potential business-ending situation.
You may also be wondering what circumstances may lead to the loss of all your business data. If you are unsure, then it is perhaps understandable why protecting your business data has not, until now, been a priority. Let's have a look at the three most likely scenarios where, as a consequence, you may find you are unable to access critical business data.
Companies who manufacture computer hardware may offer you a guarantee. Still, that guarantee only covers the cost of replacing the hardware; it doesn't cover the cost of any data lost due to a malfunction or breakdown. No computer is 100% reliable, which means access to your data can't be guaranteed if you don't regularly back up your data to a secure location.
No matter how hard we try, or how exceptional our staff is at their job, there is still no escaping the costly consequences of human error. The multi-million-dollar Mars Climate Orbiter disintegrated on its approach to the planet; it was only because those who built the engines and those who programmed them to operate, accidentally used different measurement units. Your company data can be deleted by accident more easily than you might imagine, and the input of the wrong data can be equally as disastrous. Putting in place effective quality assurance programs can help, but regularly backing up your data to safe, external storage can avoid all the negative consequences of a human error.
Despite all the advances in modern technology, the weather remains relatively unpredictable. Natural disasters like fires, extreme heat, floods, and earthquakes may cause a loss of data. It is generally accepted that 80% of all businesses who suffer from a loss of data for more than five days will go out of business if they do not have a disaster data recovery plan.
In today's Internet-driven world, you and your customers need access to your business data 24/7/365. Failure to access critical information at any moment in time can cause significant problems for your company's day-to-day operation.
A disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a documented, structured approach that describes how a company can quickly resume work after an unplanned incident. A DRP is an essential part of a business continuity plan; it aims to help an organization resolve data loss and recover system functionality so that it can perform in the aftermath of an incident, even if it operates at a minimal level.
