This month's topic is about Developing a Disaster Recovery Plan for your business.

Very recently, I had a colleague tell me a story about her former IT person.  The punchline?  He left and was very unhappy.  She wanted to ensure that her medical office data was backed up & protected and had no idea where to begin.

According to a NFIB National Small Business poll, man-made disasters affect 10 percent of all small businesses, and a staggering 30 percent have been impacted by natural disasters. A simple power outage could put your whole business at risk. In fact, research by the University of Texas has shown that only 6 percent of companies suffering from a catastrophic data loss survive, 43 percent never reopen and 51 percent close within two years.

Planning for the unknown can be difficult, but having enough funds to implement an IT disaster recovery plan can seem close to impossible. But how unlikely is it that an IT disaster will happen to your company? With the combination of natural disasters, hardware failures and human error, the reality is that data loss is only a matter of when, not if.  

Join us and our partner to learn how you can take steps to protect your business.
