Disaster recovery and backup are critical for businesses in the event of a disaster – risking data loss can severely impact your bottom line in addition to the survival of your company. But preparation can reduce costs, decrease recovery times and increase data recovery accuracy. Designing and testing a formal disaster recovery plan can help your organization meet security regulations for PCI or HIPAA compliant hosting as well as strengthen your ability to bounce back in the event of a disaster.
