RDA Disaster Recovery

Just a  couple of short years ago, we noticed an uptick in clients asking more questions about data security, backups and disaster recovery.  So in the Fall of 2019, RDA Systems partnered with HYCU, an industry pioneer in data protection, to develop customized Disaster Recovery (DR) Plans specifically for our clients.  We had no idea how ironic our timing would be.  In the spring of 2020, as we began offering these DR Plans, the world was reminded of an important lesson. Expect the unexpected, be prepared. 

A disaster recovery plan is preparations put in place to allow your organization to resume to work quickly and reduce interruptions in the aftermath of a disaster. Disasters can be any event that affects your server and/or data and results in a halt of your daily operations. This can be a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or tornado, that affects the server center hosting your cloud server.  It can also be a cyber attack, such as a virus or worm, that affects your entire server from within your own data set.  

The list of organizations facing data disasters is growing daily. The types of threats, the sources, the problems they create  – it can be overwhelming.  One quick google search on this subject can send you into a panic. RDA is very thankful for our partnership with HYCU and the DR plans they helped us develop, as it allows us to take this burden off our clients.    

Investing in a disaster recovery plan will provide you with immediate peace of mind in knowing that whatever the circumstances, data will be restored, payrolls will go out on time and business will continue as usual.  

If disaster recovery planning is on your to do list, we can help.  If it is not on your list, should it be? Please contact Mimi English for more information on Disaster Recovery Plans for your organization.
