Scan the headlines on any given week, or just click over to that weather-lover’s favorite site and you’ll find at least one reminder of what nature’s wrath is capable of.

Power surges, flash floods, earthquakes, a leaking roof—a host of catastrophes large and small can knock your business offline for days, even weeks. For some businesses, being down for even an hour can have a tremendous bottom-line impact.  In a world full of risks, it’s easy to become worried.

But despite how sobering these thoughts can be, planning for the unexpected does not need to come from a place of fear.  Think of it instead as part of your company’s best practices and risk management planning—sensible steps to ensure your business is safe and buttoned-up before anything happens.  Off-site secure data back-up is a tool that not only great hedges against disaster, but is also of lasting value to your day-to-day operations.

By now you already know that data is your company’s lifeblood, and you need to protect it—not only because it contains all of your customer records and vital business information, but also because (depending on your industry) losing access to it even temporarily could put you in noncompliance with federal and/or state regulations, resulting in fines or penalties.

It’s time to be proactive. Disaster-recovery planning helps your business stay in control. Life may be unpredictable, but with the right plan for your records in place, you’ll be on your way to dealing with whatever Mother Nature, human error or just plain bad luck throws your way.
