Data Backup When All Goes Well, Data Recovery When All Goes Wrong
Inappropriate data backup and recovery arrangements are often discovered by an organisation when the events they were supposed to protect it against have already happened. At the very least loss of computer systems or data will result in unnecessary cost, or worse will damage your ability to provide goods and services to customers either in the short or long term. It could even result in irreparable damage to your business?s reputation and destroy its ability to trade.
The choices your IT support provider makes when designing data recovery and backup solutions are critical in ensuring the long term success of your business. They have little affect when everything is going well but when things go wrong you will be pleased if you took a proactive approach and designed effective data recovery infrastructure.
The process that needs to be followed to help design appropriate data backup is in fact very straight forward. You simply identify what your information assets are and what threats and vulnerabilities exist. You then design procedures and controls that limit those vulnerabilities as far as is practically possible. Having said this, significant knowledge and experience is required for successful analysis or your computer and other systems. Testing your data recovery solutions so you know they will work is also important.
If you get this process right then this will benefit you in all sorts of situations ranging from when a user accidentally deletes and important file or needs a computer repair, to when a Boeing 747 accidentally ditches on your office destroying all your computers. Effective data backup systems mean it becomes virtually impossible to lose any of your valued computer data, apart from following the most extreme catastrophic events.
