Business Disasters Can Take Many Forms

Business Disasters Can Take Many Forms

We often think about disasters in the context that they completely destroy the office, rendering your business incapable of operations. However, this is only part of what is encompassed by the term “disaster,” and the whole picture is far more terrifying. Any disruption to your operations can be considered a disaster in its own right, so we wanted to take some time to go over what you should look out for with your disaster planning.

Sure, there are disasters that threaten your physical infrastructure, but the types of disasters that most organizations will suffer from are something quite different.

Disasters are Common Occurrences

Natural disasters might be the first thing that comes to mind, and depending on where your office is located, you might experience various different types of them, whether they are structural fires, electrical storms, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, or others. They can inflict serious damage to your office and potentially make it impossible to conduct business from that site. There are other types of disasters that aren’t so in-your-face, though, and these are the ones we want to talk about today.

The disasters that don’t destroy your office are the ones that can impact your operations in serious ways, like data breaches, hardware failure, or user error. If you’re not careful, these disasters can bring your productivity to a sudden end. Hardware failure in particular can lead to data loss and downtime, both of which can be devastating for your bottom line.

Data breaches can be a serious problem, especially when they can impact operations. An active data breach makes your infrastructure inaccessible while the threat is mitigated, and in some cases, data can be locked down by ransomware. User error can also create situations where data is misplaced or lost. All it takes is poor security practices or a network misconfiguration.

Get Ready to Handle All Types of Disasters

If you want to keep your business from suffering due to unpredictable disasters, you need to 1) implement a data backup and disaster recovery solution, and 2) consider all aspects of business continuity.

With comprehensive data backup and disaster recovery solutions, you can follow through on the 3-2-1 data backup rule with three copies of your data in two locations, one of those located in the cloud for accessibility purposes. Business continuity includes much more than your data backup, though, and it includes aspects of running your business such as your workforce, your place of operations, and chain of command.
