Step 2: Ask the right questions. When developing your disaster recovery strategy, ask the right questions. What are the worst case scenarios? How can we prevent data loss? Can we easily access our data a web-based system if the data goes missing or is destroyed?
Step 3: Plan for the worst case scenario. If disaster hits and your important company information is lost or destroyed, how will you react? Have a plan in place to know exactly who to contact after your data is lost and what procedures you’ll need to follow to attain recovery.
Step 4: Avoid the worst case scenario. By storing your electronic files and active documents with R4 Services, your vital business information is safely secured and available should you need it.
