In my last article, “Where Recovery Begins,” I discussed the importance of prioritizing your critical data. Backup options: Company data should be securely backed up offsite and available for recovery at any time.
Dress rehearsal: Practice a recovery process every few months to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Check the location of your critical data: Make sure you know where the critical data is stored at your company.
Assume that your normal methods of communication during a disaster or emergency will not be functioning.
Put a copy of the plan somewhere that won’t be affected by data failure or office evacuation.
Jennifer Walzer is the CEO and Founder of BUMI, an online backup and recovery provider that serves over 500 businesses. Business Continuity is a proactive collaboration between business executives and technology professionals designed to ensure that mission-critical functions can continue during and after a disaster. To prevent downtime and data loss, businesses of all sizes require data backup and a comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery plan.

Let us provide you the peace of mind that a detailed disaster recovery plan offers - your business and livelihood depend on it. 93% of companies that lost their data center for ten days or more as a result of a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 30% of companies report that they still do not have a disaster recovery plan or business continuity program in place and two in three companies feel that their data backup and DR plans have significant vulnerabilities Furthermore, only 59% of companies polled test their data backup and storage systems at least once a quarter. The Zmanda Disaster Recovery Solution provides robust and cost-effective disaster recovery capabilities for your critical data assets.

Affordable: The Zmanda Disaster Recovery Solution is available as an annual subscription that includes implementation, through secured remote shell, by Zmanda Professional Services. Businesses need to determine what data they would need immediately to continue functioning after a disaster or loss of corporate data.
A business can’t function going forward if they can’t retrieve their critical data after a disaster. An excellent way to do this is via online backup whereby a company’s data is backed up each night and stored far away from the company’s location.
If people store their data on their desktops instead of the file server, make sure all desktops are backed up. The information technology (IT) disaster recovery plan may include data backup, remote and off-site data storage, server maintenance and data recovery services.
This includes networks, servers, desktops, laptops, wireless devices, data and connectivity.

The technology professionals at ECC IT Solutions can help you better prepare for planned and unplanned disruptions through more proactive data backup, enhanced security and a well-designed disaster recovery plan. We currently offer a number of solutions to ensure the continual protection of your critical data, files and information.
Once the business defines the significance of all of their data, they can begin to develop their disaster recovery plan. Data loss can often occur in any number of ways including human error, a computer virus, hardware or system failure, software corruption, theft, or a natural disaster. A properly structured plan is comprised of three components: data, communication, and people. Small and medium-sized businesses with limited technical staff maybe are particularly vulnerable in the event of any type of major disaster. It is therefore extremely important to have your disaster recovery plan documented and to occasionally test the plan to ensure that it meets the ever changing needs of your business. The plan should detail your data assets and document how each asset will be backed-up and restored. It should also include a comprehensive disaster recovery policy regarding media storage, media rotation, and security, as well as procedures for natural disasters.
Obviously, disaster recovery planning should be a regular activity for businesses of all sizes.
