Disaster can strike at any time, whether it's a fire, winter storm, robbery, earthquake, or even human error. In fact, according to the International Data Corporation, the average data loss incident will leave you with seven hours of downtime. That's almost an entire workday lost, and without even accounting for how long it will take to recover from the disaster itself.
It's vital to be properly prepared so that your business can continue to serve your customers, maintain compliance, and keep downtime to a minimum. This requires thorough Disaster Preparedness, but without the right knowledge, there's no guarantee that your preparations will be effective.
Without the right preparations, your business could suffer devastating consequences as the result of an emergency. Think for a minute about how difficult it would be if you couldn’t access your computers or data for an extended period. Data loss and the inability to serve your customers will affect your business' reputation and in many cases can force a business to shut down.
