Data recovery is more a strategy than a solution. You first need to keep a regular backup to ensure that you aren’t losing large chunks of productivity. Then, you need to have a strategy to efficiently recover data if it is corrupted, lost, or stolen. Today, we’ll talk a little bit about some situations that businesses run into that would spark data recovery.
Unfortunately, many of the efforts you make to protect your data from outside threats work, and it is a member of your staff that makes the gaffe that requires a recovery. There are many ways that your data can be lost or corrupted. Of course, it also could be you that is at fault.
Whomever is at fault, once a file is corrupted or lost, you need to recover and it could cost hours of operational downtime if your backup system isn’t built for data recovery. That’s why it has become critical that you educate your users on the best practices of handling organizational data, and how a lack of diligence can be detrimental to the organization’s health.
Freak weather can lead to terrible situations for businesses. Flood waters, high winds, even mold can cause a company to have to shutter their business. That’s why it is so important to have a continuity program that includes data protection.
