Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions Data Backups and Business Continuity Management

Data loss can come from many sources, both externally and internally. Hard drive or network failures, power outages, and malware are only a few factors that can contribute to a data loss disaster and cost you time and money. These unexpected events, known as black swan events, come out of nowhere—and if you’re not prepared, the devastation can be crippling for your business. In some cases, the losses are so great that they can cause a business to shut its doors forever.

The good news is that data loss is preventable with a business continuity management strategy. The bad news is that many businesses rely on outdated backup and disaster recovery solutions.

What Is Business Continuity Management?

A business continuity management plan is a multi-tiered approach for addressing potential problems in case the unthinkable happens and your network loses valuable data.

A thorough business continuity management strategy covers:

  • Business recovery
  • Crisis management
  • Contingency planning
  • Incident management
  • Disaster recovery

Backup and disaster recovery solutions protect your network from both internal and external threats.

External Network Disasters

External disasters are those that affect your network from the outside. These can include:

Malware: Extensive data loss is a common side effect of a cyberattack.

Power failures: A power failure can cause systems to shut down improperly, sometimes resulting in lost files and other sensitive data. Brown-outs and power surges can have devastating effects on your hardware, possibly leading to data loss.

Fire damage: Fires can be devastating on many fronts, including the damages done to your hardware. Many businesses have data backups in place, but store them on a hard drive in the same building. This makes them susceptible to destruction in a fire along with the original files.

Natural disasters: Flooding, earthquakes, and heavy storms are just a few examples of natural disasters that can impact your data storage.

Internal Network Disasters

Internal disasters are those that originate within the business itself, usually accidentally. These include:

File deletion: An employee may accidentally delete files, corrupt them, or overwrite them. Having business continuity solutions can allow these files to be recovered.

Theft: If your computers are stolen, so is any information you have stored on them. Backup data recovery solutions will track what information was stored on the stolen equipment and restore the data.

Damage to hardware: From power surges to outdated equipment, your hard drive is susceptible to damages that will affect the way information is stored or retrieved. Add in the human factor, such as an employee spilling coffee on a workstation, and you have a recipe for a potential disaster.

System malfunctions: Sometimes, systems crash without warning and for what seems like no reason at all. Your IT team will need to fix the system malfunction and restore your data as well.
