An effective disaster recovery plan encompasses a wide range of variables all falling into place – and it’s critical to ensure that your team is strategically prepared for absolutely anything.
A disaster can cripple operations when you haven’t accounted for everything: severe weather, human error, hardware issues, and any other number of potential threats can do major damage to your productivity. That’s why Apex works with you to make sure the 3 most critical components of your business are protected: employees, information & systems, and your facilities.
Many small and medium businesses haven’t even thought of disaster recovery – and statistics show that most small or medium businesses hit with a disaster end up closing their doors.
So, what can you do to keep your business from becoming another statistic of livelihood lost? Here are 10 crucial tips:
- Prepare employees for any variable
- Identify and prioritize your most critical assets
- Determine the biggest potential risks facing your business
- Evaluate the IT solutions you currently have in place
- Evaluate your solution provider
