Always hope for the best, but plan for the worst! At ITSN We know that in the event of a loss of data, there is no recovery. That is why we knew that trusting anyone else with the job of protecting your data just won’t do! ITSN understands how difficult losing your data can be especially if the data is business critical.
A recent report estimates that 40 – 60% of small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs) won’t survive a data calamity. Yet other priorities and financial constraints often push business continuity to a back burner. But what if there was a comprehensive backup, disaster and recovery solution that’s practically maintenance-free and priced to fit small business budgets?
A catastrophic system failure creates chaos. Gone are billing and inventory records, customer lists … miscellaneous reports. To recreate this information from scratch is expensive and time consuming. And depending on how much damage was done to the computer systems, it could be days, weeks or even months before operations return to normal. Be secure!
There is no reason a temporary setback should turn into a permanent failure – if you protect your organization before disaster strikes. The first step is to create a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan. We can help you get started right away. We will put together a comprehensive plan for your entire organization, considering key components crucial to your recovery, and establish a formal process to be followed to restore your business continuity when a disaster occurs.
We will work with you to determine the following:
Business impact assessment – We can help your company create a realistic business continuity plan that is based upon how your business would be impacted by a loss of service. Your plan will address how your business operates and will factor in the needs for access to email, phone, sales, and other data.
Maximum downtime assessment – ITSN helps you assess what your maximum downtime can be before it adversely affects your business operations. Keep in mind that you need to make an honest assessment of how long your IT systems can be down before your business is critically impacted.
Risk assessment – An outline of all potential risks to your business needs to be created. ITSN can help you identify all areas of your company that might be vulnerable to threats from natural or man-made disasters. A proper risk assessment should include define all threats, and the potential impact to your IT systems. Creating a risk assessment will help you prioritize your time and capital resources.
