When creating a disaster recovery plan, there are five errors many companies make: not having staff support, poor communication, lack of documentation, not sticking to the basics and choosing the wrong suppliers. A business continuity plan is there to make your business not only survive but thrive.
Not having a business continuity plan in place is tantamount to gambling your hard-earned life-savings in one hand of poker. Business continuity planning can not only help you overcome a disastrous event but can also save you money in the event of one. Business continuity does come at a cost, both in terms of investment of time and effort, but if done using a simple, well-designed platform it needn’t be an expensive undertaking.
It’s a given that disaster could strike at any time. In the midst of crisis and chaos even the most well-written disaster recovery plans can fall apart because they may be based on and presented in outdated forms. Cloud-based disaster recovery services, able to run on mobile devices and across multiple platforms that are safely encrypted, are setting the modern standard for disaster recovery. They provide an environmentally conscious, safe and convenient way to access information when needed.
