Any IT company or technician will tell you that a Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution is essential. We would tell you the same, and we provide this service for all of our clients.
Whether you run a school, you’re an attorney, a CPA, healthcare provider or a roofing contractor, we use the same BDR standard across the board. This way, if you have a disaster, your recovery will be as quick as possible and reduce or eliminate any downtime.
Some IT professionals call this a Business Continuity Plan (or BCP), but no matter what you call it, it will keep your data safe and accessible if you experience a disaster.
A backup & disaster recovery plan provides you with a robust set of tools to give your business the best chance to reopen and recover quickly and with as little damage as possible to your operations and reputation.
Depending on the location and nature of your business, your operations may be vulnerable to any number of natural disasters such as wind and snow storms that down trees and power lines.

Identify Your Potential Risks. Being in Colorado Springs, winter will be your riskiest time. However come March, we do get thunderstorms with lightning that can also knock out the power and prevent your employees from coming to work. And, of course, manmade disasters are always a risk. Mistakes by employees, vandalism and data theft are threats to consider as well.
Assess Your Operations and Level of Preparedness. Look for flaws in your operations. Do you have a work-at-home plan for employees if they can’t get into the office? How will you communicate and collaborate with them? This is when a VoIP phone system and cloud computing can really help. Ask about these and other technology solutions that will keep you working and connected.
Don’t Go IT Alone. You need an expert who’s trained in business continuity preparation and execution. This will give you the peace of mind knowing that no matter the disaster, they will be there for you.
