«It’s time to think about Disaster Recovery.»
IT systems have become essential to the operation of any company, so it is critical to ensure the continued operation of those systems, and their rapid recovery become a must. Preparation for continuation or recovery of systems needs to be taken very seriously. This involves a significant investment of time and money with the aim of ensuring minimal losses in the event of a disruptive event.
This involve a set of well proven steps to minimize the possibles failures on your system as well as recovery procedures for those catastrophic events that you cannot avoid that could happen as an act of God.
A disaster recovery plan is essential to the continuing operations of all businesses. As we can see with the current disaster created by hackers and ransom attacks, we must be prepared for anything. Days without operational functions can be utterly destructive to any business, and consequently, they are unacceptable. Companies must have a sound disaster recovery plan in order to ensure the survival of their business.
A disaster recovery plan must be in place to guarantee the operation of the business during an unexpected disaster.
FiRa IT Services can provide a contingency plan that has been designed, tested, implemented, and maintained in order to sustain companies during an IT unexpected disaster. Disasters could include fire, flood, any natural disaster, or things such as a hardware crash or hackers attack. It is designed to minimize the monetary and operational impacts of a disaster by ensuring the continued availability of critical IT business systems and by safeguarding the information.In the event of any disaster, we will restore the business critical IT applications from the last successful back up and provide global access to the application within the agreed 48 hours service level.
We will choose to what extent your information will be backed up, where it will be stored, how many times the media can be used, and how often the information will be backed up.
The data will be backed off-site were they are available for recovery in an off-site location that is sufficiently remote and will not be affected by the same event. Data off site are to be considered the only resource for recovery.
Each and every company must develop a plan that is suitable for them. And the plan must be tested and maintained. Obviously, you would not want to spend 10 million dollars to protect 5 million in losses. As we can see from the current increase in hackers and ransomware attacks, a well-developed plan must be in place for security. The issue is not “if they attack me”, but “when they attack me”. So it is better to be prepared in advance because as an old saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry.
Just think if an unexpected attack causes the company to go without email, all shared drives and personal drives for five days. This would cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
To avoid that kind of situation is that we have developed our Data Disaster Recovery Plan for a fraction of the price of what would you lose in such event. Affordable, reliable, secure!
