Large corporations generally have extensive plans to protect their business from the impact of major interruptions to the operation of their businesses. Whether it’s through duplicate locations for their data processing, the availability of alternative work locations for their people or through extensive archiving of their corporate data, they have a strategy and processes in place to best prepare them to keep their business operating as effectively as possible.
Small businesses on the other hand tend to feel that they cannot afford to invest in the kind of insurance this represents. Their view is generally that they will save the money and take the risk, and that they couldn’t afford any of these kinds of things anyway.
The reality is however that there are many steps a small business can and should take to protect their business, without it being a major financial burden to them. Something as simple as having a disciplined procedure for taking back-up disks and tapes off-site for storage can provide a first layer of protection against a major loss of company data. Or using an online back-up solution to securely store critical data.
BungeeCraft Technologies’ consultants can help review the requirements your business has in terms of being able to keep operating under adverse conditions, to help you understand the costs and find affordable steps and then deploy the selected solutions or define the required procedures.
It turns out that the biggest challenge is not being able to afford disaster recovery solutions, but rather simply taking the time to evaluate the different options. Having BungeeCraft Technologies’ consultants to talk to can make the whole process much more manageable.
