Albuquerque and New Mexico IT professionals demonstrated their awareness and understanding of the need for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery strategies by packing the first seminar of the Tech Junction event held at the Albuquerque Marriot Pyramid North last week.
The core takeaway?
Typically, in Albuquerque and New Mexico when one thinks of disaster recovery - visions of flooding, storms and tumbleweed or fires often come to mind. However, when considering your businesses’ Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery strategies and needs, it is important to look outside of natural disasters type scenarios.
A business related disaster is basically any event that disrupts your business continuity. Again, in Albuquerque and New Mexico overall, folks tend to think of floods or other natural disasters when pondering Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity strategies but the fact is that most business disasters happen either by hardware failure or human error, you know that “uh oh” moment when a human mistake is made.
Why is having a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plan in place so important?
It has been well documented that most businesses quite simply can’t survive more than 7 days of downtime before having to file for bankruptcy. Quite simply, every company needs a plan and a plan that is tested and proven.
Here are a few basic questions to consider when analyzing your business continuity and disaster recovery strategies.
