Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity go hand in hand. A Disaster Recovery plan defines how you are protecting your critical data so that you could survive a catastrophic failure of a server - or your entire data center - and still get your data back. A Business Continuity plan defines how you will continue to operate your business while you are in the recovery phase.

When you think about disaster planning for your business, you probably think about the big obvious things like fire, flood, or earthquake. But what about the less obvious things that could cause business interruption?
  • Failure of old server systems that are out of warranty, but still contain critical business data.
  • Third-party software vendor glitches and malfunctions.
  • Acts of sabotage by that disgruntled employee you terminated.
  • Data loss due to malware or external penetration of your network.
  • Losses due to theft or vandalism.
  • Interruptions due to an accident or situation that prevents your staff from entering your building, or that interrupts essential services to your facility, such as electrical power or telephone / Internet connectivity. (Remember that cable vault fire in downtown Seattle a few years ago?)
As a business owner or manager, any situation that prevents your staff from doing business as usual can be deemed a disaster in terms of your ability to drive necessary revenue, execute critical tasks, and communicate with clients and prospects.

Did you know...?

According to the analyst firm IDS, about 70% of all successful attacks on computer networks were carried out by employees and insiders!

According to a recent Touche Ross study, the disaster survival rate for companies without a business continuity plan is less than 10%!

International Data Corp. estimates that companies lose an average of $84,000 for every hour of downtime after a disaster!

Dont gamble unnecessarily...
