If you think Disaster Recovery procedures are a waste of time or too expensive for small businesses, think again.  Fellow Business Club, Cambridge member Neil from Safebox explains that simple and cost effective solutions are available.

It’s not going to happen to me…

3D Character and ChanceIf you see in the press that a company has burnt down or flooded, let’s be honest, the reaction is “poor things” for about a nanosecond then it’s back to work.  How many of us carry on regardless thinking, well that’ll never happen to me.  You’re right, it probably won’t but let me ask you this, do you buy a lottery ticket?  I’ll assume that the majority of us do and ask you to think about why you buy one, apart from the obvious potential of getting showered in millions of pounds.

“Because you never know, it might be me –  someone has to, don’t they?”

Protect your business; take disaster recovery planning seriously

Your business affords you your current lifestyle and if you suffered a total data loss for whatever reason, that lifestyle is immediately snatched away from you. This will affect sole traders, SME’s through to multi nationals, not to mention the regulatory bodies and frustrated customers and creditors that start banging on your door. Disaster recovery planning is an essential part of your business continuity and needs to be taken seriously.

A price to pay for piece of mind?

One solution is to store a Disaster Recovery Box which will contain everything you need to “get going” after a data loss, speak to us and we’ll be happy to quote, but it will be a lot less than you think.  Certainly less than the cost of replacing the data you’ve lost!  Storing in the region of 50 archive boxes for just £35.00 plus VAT per month.

Fancy your chances?

But if you don’t plan against the unknown, don’t worry, Saturday’s a rollover and you’ve got that ticket in the kitchen drawer!
