Business Continuity And The SMB

November 28, 2008

As SMB’s, we are often the worst at implementing disaster recovery and business continuity plans.

Even if we ensure that we back up all data on the servers (and test it!)

Think of the following scenarios;

* a gas pipe is ruptured outside your facility, no access to the building for several days

* A minor fire in a building electrical room, again several days before people are allowed back in the building.

* A burst water main on the street.

These are not major disasters like the wildfires in California, or tornado damage.

But the end result is the same. You are out of your space for days.

Can your business keep running?

This article at smallbiztechnology.com lists 5 mistakes to avoid in disaster preparedness.

Have you thought about the number 1 mistake?

Put it off until tomorrow
