  • Cost of Downtime is High

    The average yearly cost of downtime is $880,000 for mid-sized businesses.

    Cloud DRP SecurityHaving a data disaster recovery strategy in place is critical to ensure business continuity in the event of unexpected disruptions. Implementing such a strategy can be delayed for two reasons: one, it's complicated to evaluate business operations to find critical data that needs to be made available immediately after a disaster, and two, many believe that disaster recovery is just too expensive, particularly for small and medium-size businesses.

    Both of these issues create friction that slows down the adoption of disaster recovery strategies and technologies; but being able to recover quickly from a data disaster is more important than ever.

    The three main options that a small or medium sized company has when building a disaster recovery strategy are:

    • Physically moving tapes or drives offsite.
    • Replicating data between offices or to an offsite data center/centre.
    • DR-as-a-Service from the cloud.

    All Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Planning efforts need to encompass how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. The details can vary greatly, depending on the size and scope of a company and the way it does business. For some businesses, issues such as supply chain logistics are most crucial and are the focus on the plan. For others, information technology may play a more pivotal role, and the Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Plan may have more of a focus on systems recovery.

    Pandemic planning a must is today's environment

    Pandemic planning a must is today's environment

    Pandemic planning seems to be a low profile area at the moment but if you think your organization is safe from a pandemic, think again. Unlike a regionally defined epidemic, a pandemic is capable of spreading virtually anywhere on the planet. This means that a pandemic may not only impact your staff and operations, but could compromise businesses all along your supply chain, your customer base, remote plants and much more.

    Pandemics have come and gone for centuries, with the modern world suffering three major influenza pandemics in the last century (1918, 1957 and 1968). The 1918 influenza pandemic lasted three years, killing more than 50 million people, making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history.
