Backup And Disaster Recovery Plan - Speros - Savannah, GA
  • IT

According to FEMA, almost 40 percent of small businesses never reopen following a disaster. The damages and losses to your business can be too much to recover from. Insurance won’t be able to cover everything, especially not your lost customers. A backup and disaster recovery plan will help you minimize damage and loss so that you can get back to business quickly. Our step by step recovery plan will help you make sure nothing is missed or overlooked in the midst of chaos.

Start by creating an emergency contact list

The first thing you should do is create your emergency contact list. This list should include your employees’ contact information and their responsibilities. It’s also a good idea to have the contact information of your data backup provider so you can alert them right away. Lastly, you should be able to alert your customers. Having an email or call list specifically for your customers will help you keep them updated on the situation. The quicker you are able to alert everyone of the emergency, the faster you can react to the situation.

Create an emergency supply kit

If you live in a high-risk natural disaster area, as we do in Savannah, Georgia, it’s a smart idea to keep an emergency supply kit on-site for you and your employees. You should include things like bottled water, a first aid kit, and device chargers in your kit. Installing a backup generator can also keep important machines running in the event your main source of power goes out. You never know exactly when a natural disaster will hit or how dangerous its impact will be. Be proactive with a backup and disaster recovery plan so that you and your employees will be safe.

Backup your data in a secure off-site location

Having an emergency disaster plan is just one part of the equation. You should also use a backup and disaster recovery solution to secure your data. Keeping offsite backups of your data will help you restore your vital information In the event your main location is destroyed. It’s a good idea to use multiple backup sites to further ensure your data will be safe. Testing your backups is just as important. If you don’t regularly test your backups to ensure they are working, then there’s no point in even having them. A qualified managed services provider will ensure that all of your data backups are being properly secured and tested regularly.

Update your customers and employees after the disaster

Once the disaster is over and you’re able to assess your damage, it’s important to update both your employees and customers. Your employees will need to know when they will be able to return to work, and what, if possible, they can do from home. Your customers will also need to know when you expect to be back up and running so they can continue with their business too.

"Great staff! immediately responsive to our urgent repair requests. They were meticulous in diagnosing our issues and made the repairs as quickly as they could. They are a pleasure to work with! Speros provided emergency repair service during a weekend when our cabling suffered accidental damage. Speros dispatched two technicians that worked tirelessly to restore the multiple severed fiber cables.  It was not long before the entire campus was back to normal.  It was exceptional and timely service by Speros."

"Speros has been our law firm's primary internet service provider for 10+ years. Rarely do I need to ask for a service work order because they are on top of regular maintenance. Recently, I was getting requests to reboot following critical software, asked to set reboots to be automatic after midnight, so it did not disrupt our workdays. Within 30 minutes of my request, it was done. THAT is good service. THANK YOU, SPEROS Team."

"Everyone at Speros was very friendly and helpful. They communicated with our existing software/hardware management company and made it out to work on our network quickly on short notice, and had the whole issue solved in very little time. Will use this business again for our network needs. The tech that came out was amazingly easy to work with and was respectful of our hospitals covid-19 policies."
