Consider these two questions:
1. If the computer you are working on Right Now suddenly crashed and nothing on it was recoverable, what would you do RIGHT NOW?
2. If you have more than one computer or server in your business, what would you do if you got a call in the middle of the night telling you that your office caught on fire and was a total loss? What would you do tomorrow?
It’s hard to not be concerned with the safety of your company’s data. Natural disasters, hardware failures, theft and viruses have been known to wipe out a company’s data, causing them to lose irreplaceable information and spend tens or hundreds of thousands dollars. Not to mention the loss of time and added frustration. If you use even just a single computer for your business, your electronic data is probably your organization’s most valuable asset and loss of that data would have a serious impact on your business.
In order to be prepared for the unexpected, large corporations invest millions of dollars in disaster recovery planning and set up whole buildings with duplicate systems. This is obviously not practical for smaller companies who are usually operating on tight budgets, however, no matter how small your organization, disasters still need to be prepared for.
