For a business, disasters come in all shapes and sizes: a downed server, power outage, flood, fire, and even a plague of frogs. But while all of these have varied consequences, especially the frogs, each one shares a common theme—they put your data at risk.
If you haven’t already, an important subject that all businesses need to learn about is business continuity and disaster recovery. Or, simply, BC/DR. DR is exactly as it sounds and is a measure of your ability and time spent recovering from threats that affect the way you operate. Minutes, hours, days…it all matters since time is measured in revenue loss. Business continuity is your ability to continue critical operations, address customers, and provide users with services—even in or during an adverse event or a disaster.
