Effective data protection, backup and disaster recovery plans are crucial for any organisation, yet many businesses do not have an effective Disaster Recovery Plan in place, therefore are vulnerable to catastropic data loss. Don't be a statistic, affordable solutions are available.
If you're responsible for your IT systems, could you answer the following?
- How fast could you realistically be back up and running in the event of any natural disaster?
- What backup, security and business continuity systems do you currently have in place and how do you determine whether they are sufficient?
- Is all of your critical data being backed up, every day, at a different premise?
- What are the largest threats to the security and integrity of your critical business data?
- Do you know what steps and costs would be involved to rebuild your server and recover your data if you had to?
If you answered "NO" to any of the questions above, we are here and happy to help guide you.
Have you considered Online backup? Some advantages include:
- Convenience: As long as there is a computer and an internet connection, data can easily be accessed from anywhere!
- Automatic: Files can be backed up automatically - even if one forgets to.
- Reduced Costs: Online backup is more affordable and can be accessed anywhere that has an internet connection.
- Limitless Storage: Running out of storage space is not an option for online data backup.

A couple of points to consider....
- It is not only important to have an offsite backup in place to account for any instance that would destroy onsite data, it is imperative to check the offsite backup on a regular, sustained basis to be certain that it remains viable.
- There are numerous examples of businesses who thought they were doing everything they needed to do, but when an event required them to attempt to restore data from a backup, it was discovered that the backup set was incomplete or compromised. No one had ever thought to test the backup data itself.
- Even many companies that perform regular on-site data backups find themselves crippled when some sort of disaster—a fire, for instance, or flood or theft—causes severe damage to the physical plant. In some such instances, the active data set and the backup are destroyed at the same time.
