At SNC we believe IT Disaster Recovery is measured by the threat to your business, not the scale of disaster. For instance, a small web designer may consider a disaster to be the loss of an internet connection for an extended period, whereas a larger organisation may cite the loss of data/applications through natural disaster, fire or theft.
The level of mitigation for these scenarios will be vastly different but the perceived threat to the business is comparable in scale. Understanding that every business is different means that all of our disaster recovery plans are wholly relevant and provide mitigation for threats at all levels.
As well as considering the obvious issues of hardware or system failure – such as failed back ups, loss through flood, theft or fire and communication outages – a truly valuable Disaster recovery plan must also identify the practical considerations. For example it is highly likely that you will have an obligation in your insurance policy to provide a ‘suitable level of back up and recovery’. This is now common place with many businesses finding out after the event that they are not covered.
The SNC approach draws together all of these considerations and then creates a plan which balances the need to protect with the need for the business to function without impediment.
All of our plans are regularly put to the test either theoretically or practically (like a fire drill). We can also help design plans for specific instances such as relocation of the business. Don’t join the thousands of businesses that leave this to chance, contact SNC today.
