Insurance policies have one objective: In the event of a financial loss, they allow you to fully recover financially.
Disaster recovery plans work on the same principle, and they are no less vital to ensuring the safety and future of your law firm. In the event that your office experiences a disaster, natural or otherwise, a good disaster recovery plan works in two ways. It allows you to recover the data that you’ve lost, and it allows you to get back to work as soon as possible.
Protect Your Law Firm’s Data
Few professions have more stringent guidelines on confidentiality and data protection than law. Your data is critical not just to your business but to your clients as well. In the event that you lose your office due to a fire, a flood, or some other natural disaster, having your data backed up in a secure location elsewhere means it can be retrieved in a matter of hours. Consider that possibility opposed to the no doubt hundreds of hours of expense and hassle of trying to replace all of your data by other means.
More Data Backup
Backing up your data is critical, but if you can’t return to your office to restore it, you won’t be able to conduct business with your clients. This is where cloud backup really sets itself apart from other disaster recovery plans. Cloud backup enables you to back up your data and your applications. It also provides web-based access to your systems, so you and your staff can work securely from anywhere in the world. This means that even if you can’t return to your office right away, you’ll be able to work from home or a co-location.
Law firm disaster recovery can mean the difference between firms surviving a disaster or folding up shop
In the case of a flood or fire, your office building may not be inhabitable for months. How many days can your firm remain closed before it takes a serious financial hit? A good disaster recovery plan takes a bit of prep to set up, but it could mean the difference between your business reopening in days or staying closed for months. Contact us today to learn more >>.
