For many smaller businesses, disaster recovery is often overlooked. However it is in these businesses where an IT disaster can have the most impact on ongoing viability.
Loss of an IT system, be it from fire, flooding, theft or even the more mundane hard disk failure or computer virus infection can severely damage a business. It might mean you cannot contact your customers, send out invoices, or even pay the wages.
Fortunately, there are many things that can be done to mitigate these risk factors, and DSIS can assist you in creating and maintaining a workable and cost effective Disaster Recovery Plan.
This will allow you to rest easy, knowing that if something does go wrong, you have a plan to deal with it and you can get back up and running as quickly as possible, with the minimum of stress and fuss.
We can also help you to test your plan, and ensure that, should the worst happen, you can be confident that your plan will cover it.
We have a backup system already, is that not all we need?
Many small businesses believe that having a backup system in place is the same thing as having a Disaster Recovery Plan.
Whilst backups are an important factor in coping with some disasters, in reality they are just one part of having a Disaster Recovery Plan, and it is important to consider a number of other issues including:
- contact and account details for your insurance company
- contact and account details for customers and suppliers
- alternative premises in the event yours are no longer usable
- replacement hardware and installation media
