Why a Disaster Recovery (DR) Plan is Critical
to the Survival of Your Business


What is a DR plan, anyway?

As defined by Wikipedia:

A disaster recovery plan is the process, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure critical to an organization after a natural or human-induced disaster. Disaster recovery is a subset of business continuity. While business continuity involves planning for keeping all aspects of a business functioning in the midst of disruptive events, disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems that support business functions.


Let's take a minute to consider the poster-children for unpreparedness: the dinosaurs that lived 65 million years ago. When their E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) became reality, they were unprepared. As a result, no land-based dinosaur larger than about 25kg survived that event.

What about your business? Have you prepared it for its E.L.E.?

Here's an interesting parallel with the event that ended the dinosaurs' reign: Extinction Level Events, by nature are low frequency, high magnitude events. In English, that means they don't happen very often, but when they do the're show-stoppers! In York Region we're fortunate there are almost no natural threats to our I.T. infrastructure, but what about a theft that leaves you without your company data? What about a power incident that results in data corruption? You need to have a plan in place to protect your company's electronic data. That disaster recovery plan will give you that second chance at recovering lost information and rescuing your company from its E.L.E.

Why does your business need a DR plan?

Most of us have seen some version of these statistics... for companies that had a major loss of business data:

  • 51% closed within two years
  • only 6% survived long-term

"Membership has its privileges" and a DR plan from Digital Hero will ensure yours in that precious 6%.

Your customized DR plan will include the components that best suit your business's needs: multiple backup schemes, the latest hardware and software, and where appropriate, storage of your valuable data at off-site locations in Canada.
