No one likes to lose data. It’s frustrating, inauspicious, and downright annoying. Backing up your data is an important habit to take on, particularly if you’re running a business. Believe it or not, many businesses do not possess a business continuity plan nor are they prepared for disaster recovery.
Consider these odds: one out of two businesses never return to the marketplace following a major disaster. Of those that do return, 50% go bankrupt within three years. The ones that survive plan their response to a disaster before it strikes. With over 83% of businesses in the U.S. prone to a catastrophic event, it is essential to develop a contingency plan that involves data backup.
Think by Blytheco, LLC has teamed up with several experts in the business continuity industry to develop a blog miniseries about the importance of backing up data and enhancing your business’s continuity plans (BCPs) and disaster recovery procedures. The series, titled ‘Back it Up’, is meant to connect you with the information and resources you need before the occurrence of data loss. Check back periodically for more articles to come.
