Disaster Recovery plans (DRP’s) can be the be-all and end-all of a business. Have a successful one in place and your business is ready for whatever challenges lie ahead. Have a weak plan in place and your business could be wiped out faster than you can say Jack Robinson. Here are our reasons as to why you should review your current plan!
Accidents. Accidents happen. There is no way of predicting a system failure or internet drop-out so if your business relies on a software and it goes down, a DRP can eliminate all risks of losing that valuable data for good.
Keep up-to-date. Industry standards change as do rules and regulations. Your business needs to have the flexibility in order to stick with the current times – making sure you meet the governments expectations in terms of holding data etc.
Loss of time. It would be normal to panic in a situation that is out of your control. DRP’s exist to take away this panic feeling, reducing downtime if something happens whilst making sure that your precious data hasn’t gone anywhere.
Employees. Human error is one of the main causes of problems in a business. As mentioned earlier, accidents do happen and if this is the case, your employees need to be informed about the current DRP and understand what the process is when there is a blip.
Rest assured. DRP’s abolish the feeling of being on the edge. You can sleep at night knowing that if a problem within your business does occur, there are methods to combat and restore it with little trouble.
