Disaster is not inevitable but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan for it. Disaster recovery is the process, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation after a natural or human-induced disaster.
Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems that support business functions. Let us help you make a plan so that if disaster ever comes, you’re ready for it.
