Disaster Readiness

Hope is not a business strategy. Every business needs a DR plan and the right recovery strategy that fits with their business profile. A DR plan sets out preventative steps that can only be appreciated  when disaster strikes.

Telsist’s disaster readiness starts with an overview of your company’s current data backup plan. We then investigate where your data is stored, on what device it is stored on (PCs, mobile, tablet), what type of data it is (document, image, database) and how secure your network is. This will help us to determine if your critical data is being backed up properly and, how fast your IT systems can be back online in the event of a data disaster.

At the very least, Telsist can put in place a proper backup and restore plan to ensure continuous off-site protection. With your company’s data in a secure, off-site location, a large part your company’s disaster recovery puzzle is being looked after.
