Begin planning ahead of time – Don’t wait for a natural disaster or some other significant negative event to wipe out your data. Be proactive about disaster recovery; if you don’t have a plan and protection in place yet, there’s no better time to get started than today.

Implement regular data backups – Your data should be regularly backed up so it can be restored in the event of a disaster. Ideally, you’ll want to follow the ‘3-2-1 rule,’ by which you keep three copies of your data on at least two different storage devices, one of them residing offsite in another location.

Partner with a professional – By partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP), you’ll entrust the backup and safety of your precious data to a team of trained, certified, and experienced IT professionals. By doing so, you’ll ensure redundancy with a comprehensive data backup system that will minimize downtime and protect your business’s future.
