Don’t get caught out
Think about the financial impact on your business if you lost some or even all of your crucial business data.
What would your business do, where would you go and how long would it take to be completely operational again in the event of a catastrophic failure of your IT systems?
In addition, what plans and procedures do you have in place to test your backup procedures and systems regularly?
Having solid data backup and disaster recovery procedures in place is something every business needs. Many businesses found out the hard way in January 2011 when the Queensland floods hit and they realised just how under-prepared and inadequately protected their IT systems were.
Effective IT can show you how your business can be back up and running in a matter of hours – not days or weeks – in the event of a catastrophic failure. One of our clients who was directly affected by the 2011 floods was able to literally take their family for an extended holiday and still have complete access to all their systems, even though their business premises was under a foot of water with no power.
