Do you Have Security Concerns?
Every day we hear from owners and senior business leaders who are concerned with security. Over and over again companies are not bothering with basic security to protect their information. This can result in IT headaches, work disruption, and data loss. One of the most important parts of disaster recovery is developing a plan that will keep your business safe.
A technology disaster can have devastating effects on a business and its shareholders. Studies have shown that many businesses will fail after experiencing a significant data loss.
Is disaster recovery important? In one word: Absolutely.
What Exactly is a Disaster?
A disaster can be anything that puts an organization’s operations at risk, from a cyber attack to equipment failures to natural disasters. The goal of disaster recovery is for a business to continue nearly normal operations in the event of a disaster.
An example of a disaster would be if a Chief Financial Officer unknowingly revealed his emails credentials and caused a privacy breach for a healthcare organization. In most cases, these phishing emails are sophisticated and the CFO may not even be aware of what happened.
Another example is a local business that gets attacked with crypto malware. This would encrypt critical files that happened to be on a network storage device.
Don’t jeopardize your business by leaving data at the mercy of hardware or human error.
