The First Step to Backup and Disaster Recovery

What is your current strategy for backup and disaster recovery? If you don’t have one, we can help you create one. It’s vital that your business is running on a schedule and that you know your backups are running consistently without issues. If you don’t know how or when they are running, then you are leaving yourself open for attacks and loss of data.

Not only do you need a solid strategy, but you also need:

  • Contingency plans in case the initial strategy fails
  • Learn the recovery process
  • Evaluation of your current business environment

It’s okay to not know everything up front, but it’s not okay to know and not do anything about it. Being prepared is just one aspect of being a business owner. If you want to be the best you have to step up your game, and that means you are ready should a disaster strike. You’ll need an assessment of your network to make sure that there are no holes and that your network is as secure as possible.
