Disaster Recovery Planning


A Disaster Recovery Plan for your business is an essential component of an overall Business Continuity plan.

Most potential IT disasters can be avoided through Disaster Recovery planning and maintenance. Simple hardware failures, power outages or spikes, user error and virus attacks are the most prevalent causes of failure, and they happen every day. Natural disasters can be much worse, but happen quite often in North Texas. If any of these situations hit your business, could you function tomorrow? 5K can help you answer that question with a “Yes”.

From the failure of a single hard drive to the restoration of your operations center, a Disaster Recovery Plan from 5K will be a comprehensive, step-by-step process covering essential communications with providers, re-establishing communications, sourcing and configuration of new equipment, restoring data, and all computing and communication essentials needed to restore your organization’s operational capability.

Advantages of having a DR Plan:

  • Reduce confusion and downtime
  • Reduce data and income loss
  • Reduce liability
  • Increase customer confidence

Are Disaster Recovery Plans Important for Smaller Business?

Absolutely. It is estimated that 60% of small businesses hit by a major disaster never recover, due to not having a recovery plan in place. Disaster Recovery plans are just as important to smaller businesses as larger ones. They are designed to minimize revenue loss, protect your company and protect your customers, whether you have 5 computers or 500. If you provide services for state or city governments, a DR plan is often a requirement to bid. With a documented plan, you’ll find it much easier to remember priorities and take the best course of action to get you back up and running as quickly as possible in case of a failure.
