With technology continually changing and upgrading, disaster recovery is always needing to evolve to keep up with the new tech. Your business might not be a target or a media-coverage sized data breach, but your company is still at risk to scammer and hackers seeking your business’ information. Companies experience far more network security issues than you might expect, and more than half of data breaches that occur in small businesses lead to the companies’ closure.
While a natural disaster is typically the potential disaster that comes to mind for most business owners, the threat of a cyber-attack is just as real and potentially lethal.
Many businesses do not invest in data backup or disaster recovery because they are not sure which data should be saved or if they have enough sensitive data to make it worth the cost. But when the day comes that your business experiences downtime, the cost of managed IT will be worth it. Downtime costs businesses thousands of dollars when they don’t have information back up and a plan for recovery.
Receiving a consultation from a managed IT provider will help you understand how often you should be backing up information and what steps you can have in place for when disaster strikes.
When considering potential managed IT providers, choose a provider who conducts monthly recovery drills to ensure that your data is secure. Most small businesses cannot give the time or effort that it takes to perform a test, but working with a managed IT provider will help guarantee that your company is backed up and prepared for a cyber disaster.
