What is Disaster Recovery and Planning?


No one expects a disaster to take place, however, the real question is not if something will happen, but when will it happen. There are many things that can be catastrophic to your technology and business. In fact, a local PA business had to lay off more than 500 employees because of their lack of disaster planning. Having back-ups and redundancies are critical to combat down time for your business and for organizations in cities like Mechanicsburg, Gettysburg, or Westminster.


Disaster recovery and planning is the area of security preparation a business puts in place that deals with protecting their organization in response to a catastrophic event. These events can be human or natural disasters, including things like major system failures, fires, or cybercrime involving ransomware. Disaster recovery is how your business responds to these events and what you can do to quickly resume normal operations with efficiency and minimal downtime.


The questions your organization needs to ask are:


      • If something happens, how quickly do I need to be back up and running?
      • If something would happen today, how far back in time would be acceptable to start again? Would you be ok with redoing the day’s work or do you need your back-ups to happen as work is being done?
      • Can my business risk downtime and potential financial loss?


The Importance of Advanced Planning


Without a proper plan in place, facing the effects of a disastrous event can be detrimental for your business. One of the greatest risks of not having a plan in place means feeling the effects of potential financial and data loss. The longer the downtime, the greater the risk your business faces. Not only would you be jeopardizing your finances, but it may include the risks of losing employees and important clients. When you have a plan in place, you can help reduce the effects when a catastrophic event happens. Ask yourself: can my business endure prolonged downtime and major data loss?

This can include contingency plans on how your business will proceed to operate, not just from a technology standpoint.
