Businesses are facing a perfect storm of burgeoning data assets but shrinking profit margins.
Just at a time when organisations need to be investing more in their management and data recovery programmes, the money is not available to do so.
Furthermore, since the financial crisis, businesses have actually cut back on the funding for disaster recovery, leaving them with out of date or untested plans.
One of the major hurdles of an untested data recovery plan is that backups are either significantly out of date or do not work at all.
In order to prevent this, regular testing is vital but employees also need to undergo training to ensure someone is capable of responding in case of an emergency.
It is also important to ensure that businesses identify every potential event that could cause a data loss scenario and develop a communication method that will work when everyday infrastructure is lost.
Despite the tough climate, organisations must find the time and money to invest in data recovery or risk significant damage to their business.
