What NOT to do for Disaster Recovery

disaster recovery

Disaster recovery is a big deal. Keeping your business information safe is one of your top priorities, because theft, a hack, or a breach could be the end of your business.

Disaster recovery includes a few key aspects - keeping data offsite, backing it up regularly, and quickly recovering data when you need it. To complete these steps efficiently, you need to partner with the right vendor for your IT services - but more on that later.

There are many ways that disaster recovery could go wrong, so we want you to know what to avoid.

What to Avoid in Disaster Recovery

As you set up your disaster recovery plan, here are a few critical things to make sure you DON'T do.

  • Only plan for predictable or one dimension events - as we learned in 2020, anything can happen. So be prepared!

  • Forget to test or update your data and recovery plan.

  • Ignore detailed documentation or taking notes.

  • Eliminate regular reviews for your data backup and recovery solutions.

Okay, so those are things to avoid. But, flip them around to positives, and you can be well on your way to building a good disaster recovery solution.

The only way to get ahead of disaster recovery, planning, and backup - in addition to IT storage and data solutions - is to outsource your IT services to a reliable vendor with a solid background in data security.
