While driving along the highway at about 65 MPH one night, the front left tire of our car suddenly blew out. One minute we were barreling down the road doing better than a mile a minute; the next we were stuck on the side of the road, watching others quickly pass us by.

Not a big problem–fortunately we were prepared with a proper spare tire and jack. In about 20 minutes we were back on our way again. Without adequate preparation, however, the ordeal would have been a real predicament.

No driver wants or plans to have a flat tire, yet most folks travel with a spare or have run-flat tires—just in case. The cost of this preparation is small compared to the protection it provides.

Using similar logic, large businesses are typically well prepared for a computer or data disaster, accepting that such a disaster would put the entire business at risk. Yet many small and medium businesses simply hope that they won’t have a problem, and that “hope” is about all of the disaster preparation they make. Should they arrive one morning and find that a computer network destroyed, what a costly and unnecessary catastrophe would await them.

Don’t get caught:

  1. Design – Plan and implement a disaster recovery procedure appropriate for your business.
  2. Test – The only way to verify that your system is effective is to test it periodically.
  3. Maintain – Nothing lasts forever. Spare tires are great IF they have proper air pressure. Maintain your system.
