Be ready to recover - advice from Rockford IT in Telford

All business involves several connected parts so a number of components need to be combined to create a good data recovery strategy.

Strategic planning:


  • Identify key components – The IT systems of your business consist of many moving parts: hardware, software, server connectivity, software applications and data. A data recovery planning process needs to include a thorough overview of how losing one component will affect the overall IT picture.
  • Prioritise internal functions – In the event of a business downtime, it’s important determine which business functions need to be reactivated first. Eg; a plan for getting your accounting department’s technology up and running first may be the priority, then followed by other departments. The plan needs to outline the IT resources that will be required to address the most time-sensitive business functions.
  • Restore data – What is the business solution? Is your data stored at an alternate site? Are you backing up to a cloud or web-based backup system regularly? A data recovery plan should clearly identify how your data will be retrieved.
  • Minimise downtime – What are the plans for reducing the amount of time the IT systems will be down? How long can the business afford to be down? For some businesses, the answer is “zero downtime.” If this is the case for your business, the data recovery plan needs to include a strategy for backing up and restoring your IT systems.
