When you’re thinking about business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR), you know you can’t protect yourself from every disaster - some circumstances are simply unimaginable. But you can mitigate potential damage by taking a few upfront steps to ensure your data remains safe and secure. Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, has developed a checklist of six tips to help prevent data loss.
“The most important thing you can do to mitigate damage in any situation is to know what the true business impact of data loss will be to your organization,” advises Joe Long, director of business continuity and storage solutions for Logicalis. “And no matter how experienced your IT department is, IT alone cannot define that. Those answers have to come from the individual business units within your company. That means, to develop a foolproof plan, you’ve got to get IT and the business units talking to each other.”
