You wouldn’t buy a car or a house without buying insurance, so why run a business without a disaster recovery plan?

Disaster recovery is crucial for all business in the technological age; without it you open yourself up to the potential of catastrophic data loss. While data loss can be detrimental to your business, there are many reasons why disaster recovery should be an essential part of your business’s IT strategy.

Below we have outlined a few of these reasons:

Unexpected Threats

Threats to the data of your business can range from natural disasters to human error, to cyber criminals and more. Ransomware is considered a top cyber threat and poses grave issues to IT systems. Preventative measures are always best, but can only go so far when a disaster actually strikes. Your business should have a plan in place to get systems back online quickly in the event of a disaster to mitigate these unexpected threats.

The Cost of Downtime

Downtime can hit any business, at any time, for a multitude of reasons. This can lead to lost revenue, damaged reputation, loss of customers and more. The longer you are offline, the more damage your company will experience. Having a disaster recovery plan helps businesses get back online quickly, while reducing the overall impact of the downtime. A good disaster recovery plan will be specific to your needs, efficiently getting the business back up and running.

Data Security

For many businesses, the data they generate, collect and store is the lifeblood of their business. This means that the protection of this data needs to be a top priority. Having a disaster recovery plan in place helps businesses avoid catastrophic data loss. By having strict outlined action steps for the backup and recovery of data, a disaster recovery plan ensures that your data is safe and secure.

The Bottom Line

As much as we try to prepare and prevent the worst from happening, there are things that will always remain out of our control. The best course of action is to have a plan in place to reduce the impact of an unexpected disaster on your business.
