Welcome to Ground Zero Survival
In addition to general hardware failures and accidents, which can happen at any time, companies also need to consider many other types of natural disasters. Even the temporary loss of data or access to Internet and phone lines can cripple a company to the point of no recovery. Having a disaster plan and knowing what to do in case of a natural disaster can be the difference between a minor setback or complete failure. Are you prepared?
What Will You Do?
Businesses of all sizes consider information technology one of the most important components of their day-to-day operations. Having access to their customer data and and other online systems is a top priority to most businesses.
Many larger businesses can lose millions of dollars for every day their systems are down and even smaller businesses will lose customers when their website goes offline or their internal systems are down. It is crucial for nearly any size company to plan for the worst and to have a thorough disaster recovery plan in place.
Through our research, we have found that very few businesses have any sort of disaster recovery plan in place. Of those few who do, their plans are outdated and inadequate for the type of disasters they are likely to face.
The loss of IT systems can be overcome quickly with backup systems, but the loss of data is what hurts most businesses. In fact, a research study by Faulkner Information Services found that 50% of companies that lose their data due to disasters will go out of business within 24 months.
A complete and updated disaster recovery plan is essential in any type of business, so contact us today for a free consultation and example recovery plan.
