What is disaster recovery, and why is it important?
Having a disaster recovery plan can be the difference between life and death for your business. When disaster strikes, you need to make sure you have a plan in place to continue with important operations and keep serving your customers.
You face more threats than just natural disasters or accidents. Sometimes, an insider threat can put malware on your system, or one of your main networks can fail without notice. You are also up against hackers with malicious intentions against your business. In other words, there are many things that can go wrong and halt operations, so you must be prepared.
Our team is familiar with all of these scenarios and can help you create a plan to reduce impact. Let’s take a look at some details of a disaster recovery plan and how we can help.
Disaster recovery solutions with i-Tech Support
We can help you create a disaster recovery plan that incorporates three main components:
- Preventative measures: These reduce the risk of a man-made incident (malicious or benign) taking place. They also help you withstand natural disasters. We can help you build up strong defenses by offering security audits to identify gaps and training programs to prepare your staff.
- Detective measures: These can help you quickly identify an event to stop the damage from increasing. We know which indicators to look for to stay ahead of a disaster, and we can help you with anti-virus software to ensure you are alerted to any attacks.
- Corrective measures: These help to restore data to allow for operations to continue. However, you don’t just need corrective measures – you need effective corrective measures. Our experts can help you plan efficient recovery protocols for data, files and other crucial documents to keep your business running when disaster strikes.
All of these components help increase cost-efficiency by preventing a disaster from escalating. Plus, having a plan will allow your employees to execute protocols immediately to keep productivity high.
In the long-term, sound disaster recovery strategies preserve loyalty and trust in your customers. After all, if your outage lasts a while, there is a chance you will lose your customers to a competitor who can manage their outage and safeguard their data. By creating a disaster recovery plan, you can understand where your weaknesses are and how to address them.
We have helped many customers create disaster recovery plans. We will take the time to learn about your unique business and find a fitting solution. We’ll help you analyze your operations to prioritize which applications and systems should be recovered first.
