Can you afford to lose all of your data? Having a backup is critical. Every computer, hard drive, flash drive, phone, server, etc. WILL fail as some point. Shoot, sometimes you will delete your own data.
Having a back up of your computers both personal and work, is critical to being successful. In the world of mainframes and microchips it’s called data backup or data recovery and it can mean the difference between a slight computer setback and living through your own electronic nightmare. Our computers are a bigger part of life than ever before. We shop, work and play using computers. They’ve replaced stereos, encyclopedias, even the mailman. They’ve become journals, photo albums and canvases for our art. But computers don’t last forever. Files become corrupt, motherboards malfunction, hard drives call it quits taking our precious data with them. The best defense is data backup. We offer data backup options for your home, business, or any place you store your electronic data.
We suggest using IDRIVE for backing up your personal computer. You can get a five gigabyte account for free by clicking the link and for a very reasonable price you can get enough storage for all of your data.
Businesses use information technology to quickly and effectively process information. Employees use electronic mail and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone systems to communicate. Electronic data interchange (EDI) is used to transmit data including orders and payments from one company to another. Servers process information and store large amounts of data. Desktop computers, laptops and wireless devices are used by employees to create, process, manage and communicate information. What do you when your information technology stops working?
An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) should be developed in conjunction with the business continuity plan. Priorities and recovery time objectives for information technology should be developed during the business impact analysis. Technology recovery strategies should be developed to restore hardware, applications and data in time to meet the needs of the business recovery.
Businesses large and small create and manage large volumes of electronic information or data. Much of that data is important. Some data is vital to the survival and continued operation of the business. The impact of data loss or corruption from hardware failure, human error, hacking or malware could be significant. A plan for data backup and restoration of electronic information is essential.
