Operating a business comes with inherent risk.
Mitigating that risk is something every business leader must consider. From ensuring a safe environment for customers who visit your location, having a lock on your door to prevent theft, to having a sprinkler system that quickly puts out fires, businesses are always looking for ways to minimize risks.
A business continuity plan is a blueprint a business can follow in case of disaster. There are typically leadership roles assigned as well as failsafe measures in place such as policies, procedures, and action steps.
A business continuity plan is a proactive measure taken to make sure your business is capable of continuing to operate even if something catastrophic happens. One of those steps should include creating a disaster recovery plan.
From financial records to customer accounts, stored data is the core of your business operations. Imagine the cost and length of time that would be required to recreate those records.
To prevent that kind of risk, it is essential to regularly and automatically backup your data. By storing a backup of your data at an offsite location, you will have access to the information your business needs to remain in operation, even if your facility is inaccessible or destroyed.
