Is Your Disaster Recovery Plan Tried and Tested?

So, when was the last time you tested your disaster recovery plan?B Ibm assuming that you have one and that it includes:

  • Backup of all data (servers, laptops, desktops, etc.)
  • Offsite storage of backups at a secure site
  • Regular simulation of a disaster to test the plan

If youbre not convinced itbs worth stopping the daily grind to test your backup, consider a few of these statistics:

  • 93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year
  • 20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years
  • 33% of all data loss disasters are caused by human error!

So, it isnbt likely that it will take a 100 year flood or its equivalent to provide an opportunity to use the backup that youbve created.B Rather, a few errant keystrokes could bring down the whole organization if youbre not prepared.

Online backup services are one of the fastest growing areas for cloud service providers b for good reason.B You can transfer much of the cost of maintaining all the technology you need to establish a fool proof disaster recovery plan with a single (and predictable) monthly cost.B And, thatbs good for business b today and on that future day when your disaster recovery plan isnbt just being tested – itbs being tried!
