Are You Prepared for a Data Disaster?

1,800,000,000 gigabytes of data was created in 2013. That’s a lot of data and every piece of it has to go somewhere. No matter where you store your data, you need to understand one thing: all of it can be lost in a matter of seconds.

Without a data disaster plan in place, you could be vulnerable to losing all of your data and even your business.

Importance of a Data Recovery Plan

Whether it’s natural disaster, equipment failure, a cyber-attack, or someone accidentally  hitting the big red delete button, all of your data can be lost. Without a data disaster recovery plan, you could lose everything, including your business. When data disasters strike, 43% of businesses aren’t able to keep their doors open. A data disaster recovery plan can keep your doors open, your customers happy, and your business running smoothly.

Perform a Data Network Analysis

The first step in any data recovery plan is to figure out where you are most vulnerable. By performing a risk assessment, you learn where the most critical issues are before they ever have an impact on your business and you can better determine how to set up a data recovery plan that works for you.

Implement Solutions that Work

Without solutions in place, knowing you are vulnerable doesn’t do you any good. After you have performed a network analysis to determine where you are most in need of protection, it’s time to actually implement a plan, which may be a little outside of your realm of expertise. Instead, you should contact an IT service provider that can provide you with the security you and your data need.
