Ensure Proper Data Storage
Data is crucial to making business financial decisions, but how do you know if you’re storing your data properly? It’s crucial to have a disaster recovery plan tailored to your business. Whether it’s ransomware attacks, natural disasters, or resentful ex-employees, you should look at three factors to determine the extent of your backup and recovery needs. Identify your server dependency level, determine how much data your server stores, and calculate the cost of downtime in the event of an IT disaster.
