We all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; yet, disaster recovery planning often is an afterthought compared to the daily deadlines and pressures of running a business. That means that most businesses, including your own Chicago based business, may end up offline and without your data after a simple lightening storm.
Don’t think that could ever happen to you? Consider this: Even though Chicago is unlikely to experience an Earthquake, “data-erasing disasters” can also be caused by a hard drive failure, office fires, a flood, a tornado or a broken water pipe. Even more common are software corruption, hackers, hardware failures and human error!
