Does Your Business Have a Disaster Recovery Plan?
Forty percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster and another 25 percent fail within one year according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Don’t let your business become a statistic. Design a Disaster Recovery Plan so you can relax knowing that your business will be protected in the event of an emergency.
What is a Disaster Recovery Plan?
A Disaster Recovery Plan is a documented process or set of procedures to recover and protect business IT and voice communications in the event of a disaster. Such a plan, ordinarily documented in written form, specifies procedures an organization is to follow in the event of a disaster.
Insurance Is Not Enough
Hurricane Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, and the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. Damage amounted to $71.4 billion – per Wikipedia. When disaster strikes, large or small, you need to get your company back in business ASAP. Your customers and employees depend on it. Insurance is not enough. You need a plan! Is your data backed up adequately? Do you have company guidelines with procedures to re-route calls, access your data and promptly get back to business?
What Can Cause a Disaster?
Natural disasters such as large storms, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes can devastate a business. Man-made disasters can be equally as destructive. Businesses should also have a plan in place for virus attacks, attacks of terrorism, hazardous material spills, and infrastructure or power failure.
