Disaster Recovery Solutions: Getting Prepared

For businesses, having a disaster recovery plan in place is not optional – it's critical. Indeed, the recent spike in natural disasters has many organizations thinking about their business continuity plans.

Events like hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria; tornadoes in the Midwest and South, fires and floods in California and storms all across the nation affected thousands of businesses, causing some to go without power and Internet connectivity for days, weeks or even months.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 2017 was the costliest year ever for the United States when it comes to natural disasters. The country experienced 16 different events that resulted in more than a billion dollars in damage each, with a total price tag of $306.2 billion.
