Small businesses are at risk from disasters which can cause downtime or data loss. Without an effective disaster recovery plan in place, the chances of one of these disasters putting them out of business permanently are greatly increased. Despite this risk, over half of small and medium sized businesses currently have no disaster recovery plan in place.
Data is vital to the success of most modern businesses. How long realistically could your business survive without access to data? If you lost access to all your records, customer contact information, financial data, stock inventory etc. could you still serve your customers?
If the idea of losing all your data scares you, you should already have a data backup and recovery plan in place. But if you haven’t got one, hopefully we can convince you that it’s time to backup and secure your data.
