The path from disaster to recovery is mainly preparation…
In some areas of IT it pays to take extra care, and Business Continuity, including Backups and Disaster Recovery, is one. Your back-up system is only a part of the real picture. It’s also vital to identify risks with potentially severe impact, mitigate them, and both plan and practice a robust recovery process, to get you running again if one or more of the risks eventuate. GTB will work with you to understand your risks, your tolerance to those risks, and therefore what backup and recovery options will suit you best. For example:
What happens if you or one of your staff accidently deletes an important file or folder, or saves over critical data?
And what if this happened several week or months ago but no one noticed until now?
What happens if your system get an infection which corrupts your data, including your back-ups?
What if an employee goes ‘rogue’?
What if someone forgets to do the back-up routine and then disaster strikes?
What happens if your hardware malfunctions and you can’t access your information?
What next if your building burns down?
What happens to your business if your region suffers a natural disaster?
Talk to GTB now about your risks, and the solutions we can offer. We take time to understand your risks and the need you have, and then can advise, implement and support appropriate solutions. These include aspects such as: “Recovery Point Objectives” – Ensuring you can never lose more than a certain amount of data. For example, if your building suddenly burnt down right now (and everyone was safe) and you lost everything inside including your entire IT system and back-up devices – then how much data would you lose? Just the work done today? More? How important is that to you. We can ensure that even if this happens, you will never lose more than an agreed amount of data, right down to the most recent 10-15 minutes work. “Recovery Time Objectives” – Ensuring you are back up and running within a certain amount of time. Even if your data is safe, how long will it take you to get setup and running again? How long can you afford to be down? We can ensure that you are back up and running, with access to your data, within an agreed time that matches your business needs. GTB makes backups, security and recovery as easy as they can be – Contact GTB now to discuss.
