Disaster Happens – Is Your Business Ready? (Disaster Recovery)

By WillD|April 20th,2013|Disaster Recovery,IT,Security|No comments

Preparing for an emergency is a key factor to business continuity after a disaster. Wherever the threat comes from – whether it’s physical, virtual, network failure or cybercrime-related – it’s important your business is equipped to deal with the problem.

In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor estimates over 40 percent of businesses never reopen following a disaster. And when we consider these potential consequences, it’s important you have a disaster preparedness plan ready. In creating such a plan we recommend you consider the following:

Communication strategy – Make a plan about how you will communicate any disaster and its affects to your internal and external audiences – 40 % of businesses will never reopen following a disaster.

Financial management – Ensure you can still access your company accounts, pay bills on time and make the payroll.

Data backup – Keep your company information safe by backing up assets and storing a copy offsite on a regular basis, this will facilitate seamless disaster recovery.

Cloud-based software – Move software to cloud-based versions of the programs you use today. This acts as a great alternative to data backup and lets employees have access to email, important documents, contacts and calendars – anytime from virtually anywhere.

Technology updates – Maintain vigilance when it comes to keeping your technology updated with security patches to safeguard your network against the latest threats.
