Think about what happens every time an IT problem occurs in your business. It distracts your employees from their work or makes them physically unable to do their job. When your IT problems go unresolved, it becomes a real cost for your business. That’s where a Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BCDR) Plan comes into place!
Implementing a BCDR plan is essential in the modern digital age. If your business were to ever lose its data from drive failure, natural disaster, or human error, you could be staring tragedy in the face. In fact, 80% of businesses use at least one SaaS (Cloud) application and only 26% are protected by using third-party backup tool. Do you use Office 365 or G Suite? If so, it’s time to protect that data because these applications do not promise 100% data recovery.
