3 Tips to Shield Your Business From A Data Disaster

Take a moment to consider your answer to this question, “What would you do if all of your business’s data was somehow lost overnight?” How would you react, and what would you do about it? Your data is valuable, so much in fact that your business would be lost without it, and likely wouldn’t be able to run properly.
A surprising amount of small businesses don’t have any disaster recovery plan set up for the worst-case scenario, thinking that something like that could never happen to their business. But, here’s one more question: “Do you want to take that risk?” The responsible answer would be “no”, because there’s a lot more at risk than just your company’s data. If your data were compromised, it could mean that all of your clients’ personal information could also be at risk.
Thankfully, Michell Consulting Group is here to give you three tips and tricks that will keep you from questioning the future of your data. While our Backup & Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution can completely get rid of any worries you have about keeping your data safe, there are a couple of things you can do for yourself to ease your mind.
Prepare for the Worst, But Hope for the Best
If you prepare for the worst, you know that you’ll be ready for anything, come what may. This way, even if you are struck with small inconveniences, you will be ready for them. Even if the worst happens, you’ll be ready for that, too!
The first step in creating this plan would be to take an inventory of all of your data systems, storage, and hardware. Once you know what you have and what you need, it will be easier to figure out what the best plan of action is for backup planning. You aren’t alone with this. Michell Consulting Group would be happy to help you out. We can advise you every step of the way of your data backup and recovery journey.
The Best Offense is a Good Defense
Perhaps the best way to prepare for the calamity called data loss is risk prevention. We see this all of the time – in order to keep robbers out of your house, invest in a security system, or to keep your home safe from burning down, turn off the stove and electrical before you leave. The same can be said for data recovery. However, risk prevention is easier said than done.
Michell Consulting Group can hook you up with all sorts of methods of protecting your data, like firewalls and antivirus software. We can also make sure that your protection systems are kept up-to-date with our remote patching services.
Is It Really Gone?
You might recall telling your mother that something is gone, or lost. She didn’t believe you, so she started snooping around herself. Before long, she would find what you were looking for, saying it was there the whole time. You would get mad because you looked foolish, but then you realized that you just weren’t looking hard enough.
Before you get too flustered over the prospect of lost files, make sure that it is indeed lost or corrupted before taking any drastic measures. Sometimes people can misplace files, and with today’s growing technology, it isn’t surprising. Who knows – maybe Michell Consulting Group can even help you find the files, too!
