Centerpoint IT’s mission is to make IT simple for our clients, a goal we hope to achieve though education and awareness. During our recent webinar, we discussed a threat that businesses seem to underestimate; data loss. Whether the cause is hardware failure, human error, a malware infection, power failure, or another unforeseen cause, without a reliable recovery plan in place you risk losing everything.
Business Continuity Planning is the key to overcoming data loss. More than just backing up your important data and applications, it’s crucial that your business has protocols in place to restore regular operations as quickly as possible. This includes both onsite and offsite backups, as well as backups of your OS, software, applications, and settings.
Different disaster scenarios require different responses. Having options available to fit each situation that allow you to get back on track with minimal downtime can make or break your business, which is why it’s important to discuss your Data Backup and Disaster Recovery plans with your IT provider. You need to have a clear idea of what your recovery timeline needs to look like to avoid finding yourself facing a worst case scenario.
Your Backup and Disaster Recovery Plan is your business’ last line of defence against a crisis situation. It’s what allows your business to move forward when something goes terribly wrong. Taking the necessary steps today could be the only thing ensuring that your business will still be there tomorrow.
Centerpoint IT offers complete Business Continuity Planning to help make sure your business is covered, no matter what crisis you may find yourself thrown into. Contact us at email@example.com or (404) 781-0200 to find out more.
