As a small business owner, you obviously have many challenges. Meeting revenue targets, keeping customers satisfied and reducing operational expenses are just some of the obstacles you face.
Imagine you come into the office and your PCs and server - the technological workhorses that your business relies on to operate - are completely fried.
You’re faced with the challenge of getting your business back up and running. You can’t afford extended downtime, and don’t want to imagine how it will impact your bottom line. Sadly, data loss is common. Whether it’s natural disasters like hurricanes, electrical storms and floods, or new-age disasters like viruses (think CryptoLocker), user error, or old/faulty equipment. You need a proper business continuity plan to stay protected.
Business continuity is a key component of your overall strategy. It’s not fun to think about, but you’re better off preparing now, rather than scrambling after it’s too late. In this series of blogs, we’ll talk about what business continuity actually is - and why it’s important to take it seriously.
If you’re like most businesses, you work on PCs. Your PCs run applications like MS Office, Exchange, SQL and other software. The files created using these applications are saved on servers that store your business data. It’s safe to say your business relies on these pieces of technology to operate, so you need to ensure the data is safe and readily available.
