The biggest mistake you can make that definitely puts your data at risk is not having any type of disaster recovery plan. Your high-availability solution protects your business data, applications and operating systems. But in the event of a catastrophic event, that may not be enough to recover your business. A large-scale disaster could level your physical office environment, damage equipment and injure your employees. A comprehensive disaster recovery plan will have systems in place to protect all the business functions within your company – in addition to the high-availability protection that secures data, applications and operating systems. No business is immune to disaster, outage or downtime. And every business – no matter how small – is obligated to have some level of disaster recovery in place to satisfy due diligence, compliance and competitive standing.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking a disaster won’t happen to you. You never know.
