We at Redmond Computers & Internet Services can help you answer all of these questions and many more that you may or may not even thought about yet. Being prepared for disaster recovery means to be prepared to spring your business back into operation as quickly as possible. In our experience, we have found that proactive business owners have set a threshold of 1 day to 7 days for their systems to be back online in a remote location in the event of a natural disaster. Now, that may be too aggressive for some business owners. However, the point is that being prepared for such a catastrophe is the first step to ensuring the longevity of your business and its ability to continue to flourish.

Here are some things to put in place in your business to ensure business continuity:

  • Backup schedule

Have a routine schedule to backup all your critical data. A daily incremental backup routine followed by a full weekly backup is a good starting point.

  • Offsite backup

If you do not have a location offsite where you can store a copy of your critical data, consider getting one. This can be any site that is at least seven miles away from your place of business. You could even get a safety deposit box at your bank.ave a routine schedule to backup all your critical data. A daily incremental backup routine followed by a full weekly backup is a good starting point.

  • Quarterly restore

It is not enough to just backup your data, you must also be able to ensure the integrity of the data being safeguarded. As a business owner, you should consider simulating a disaster once a quarter and attempt to restore all the critical data to see if you run into problems with your current disaster recovery strategy.
