IT services in Albuquerque are always in flux because of the continuous improvements needed to fight evolving IT security threats today. The size of an organization, the kind of services they provide, and what sort of employees they hire all factor into it. The reality is, no matter how many things you take into account, you can't keep your systems 100% operational 100% of the time. If you can, you are some post-human entity that has, as yet, only been seen through the lens of fiction. The reality is that human error and natural entropy put computer systems in regions of disrepair and/or complacency. The question isn't "IF" your network is going to crash, the question is "WHEN". The next question would be something to the tune of: "...and what are you prepared to do?"
Well, it's very advisable to design what is called a business continuity plan. This is a strategy which anticipates some kind of disaster and helps your business to more expediently bounce back when the unthinkable happens. It's an airbag, it's an emergency brake, but more than that, it's comprehensive operational insurance. The most important aspect of most businesses today is the data they generate and operate from. Without this information, they're not likely to operate as well as they could or should. IT services in Albuquerque can help you design the kind of business continuity plan you need that includes the necessary effective elements.
Three categories which basically summarize the necessities of effective business continuity plans include:
A Plan That Is Resilient
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Now one thing that makes Thanksgiving dinner so special is that there are just so many courses. That meal is resilient against all kinds of family appetites. The vegan can have salad and cranberry sauce. There's white meat, dark meat, stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls, donuts, confections, cakes, pumpkin-spiced fill-in-the-blank. You name it, Thanksgiving has it. Your business's continuity plan should be like Thanksgiving dinner. It should cover the bases of all food categories. What you don't realize is that somebody put your Thanksgiving Dinner invitation on Craigslist.com and you're going to have a lot of unexpected cybercriminal guests trying to crash the party of your MSP.
Your business continuity plan must be able to overcome threats large and small because it operates on multiple levels just like Thanksgiving dinner.
A Plan That Institutes True Recovery
The plan must make it so that all data is recovered. You need to bounce back quickly and with all your files intact. One way this is done today is through cloud computing solutions which "mirror" your network for nigh-instantaneous recovery.
A Plan That Includes Contingency Solutions
You need to have at least one backup plan for your backup plan. If you've got the resources and ability, you might backup your backup's backup as well. This sounds ridiculous but you can't be too cautious. Physical, cloud, and essential data backups are all recommendable depending on your resources.
