Disaster Recovery

Run a business long enough and you will be dealt a bad hand. It may not feel like it but when disaster hits you have a choice. Roll over and quit or recover. And assuming you've done the work to anticipate risk and maintain continuity you will likely recover well. You may even end up with a healthier, more vigorous business in the wake of disaster.

THE DEFINITION OF DISASTER

Funny how we categorize disasters. Acts of God sit squarely in one camp while acts of stupidity vacation in another zip code across town. And while there are differences between bad, and really bad, disaster [any way you cut it] is disruption—plain and simple.

Imagine a natural disaster and its effect on your businesses. Tech needs electricity, but localized power loss really doesn't rank as a top business disaster unless your business is manufacturing or power based. Obviously, power loss is a big deal, yet laptops and cloud-based data allow the continuation of many operations.

So what [is] a worst-case scenario for a disaster? If most acts of God are so-so, then manmade disasters, especially malicious cyber-attacks rank as some of the worst. Data theft and hostage/ransom scenarios are disasters to worry about and require constant vigilance in continuity planning. These are the types of disasters some businesses don’t come back from.

THE DEFINITION OF RECOVERY

What's your comeback/recovery story going to be like? Will it be about pointing fingers, panicking, or rolling up your sleeves? Remember we said recovery is a choice?

WHAT WILL DEFINE YOUR DISASTER RECOVERY?

PREPARATION

To keep your business open during and after an incident you must be ready to recover operations quickly after interruptions. Speed and preparation reduce the costs and duration of any disruption. Not only will preparation mitigate risks and financial exposure, it will build customer confidence and trust.

TEAMWORK

You have to respond fast but you can’t do it alone. Teamwork in a harmonious and structured way is essential! Targeted communication and coordination of tasks within your team and with Stimulus Technologies are crucial to successful recovery.

FORGED/EMPOWERED

The strongest steel is forged by the hottest fires. It is pounded and struck repeatedly… Your recovery incident gives your business power and flexibility, and the blows you took give you new strength. You are endowed with a new confidence to withstand nearly anything.

VICTORY LAP

Take an extra lap after the disaster/after the recovery. Celebrate your victory and give credit where it is due. Overcoming a disaster doesn’t have to be hush-hush, it can be marketing fuel. Crushing a disaster is cause for celebration, not shame. Customer trust and team synergy can experience a surge after disaster recovery.
