April 17th, 2020 by admin

You cannot fully understand how essential it is to have a backup plan until you really need one. Don't wait until it is too late to put your BDR plan in place—reach out to Lang Company today to learn how we can help.

Do You Have a Data Recovery Business Plan?

If you've spent any time browsing the websites of IT service providers or tech companies, you have probably seen at least a few articles on the importance of business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Risk management is part of the job for anyone who provides managed IT services and your data security is a crucial piece of that puzzle.

Ideally, you'll never know if your security is overprepared because your precautions and backups will be there to protect your interests. Unfortunately, you will find out if your security features are underprepared when your business loses information and faces significant disruptions in your day-to-day operations.

Don't delay in putting a backup and disaster recovery plan in place. Contact Lang Company to start protecting your business today.

What Do Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Mean?

You've heard the terms and seen the services offering data backup, but what does disaster recovery look like? It is more than just backups of your data or another layer of defense from cyber attacks. Disaster recovery is a plan we build around the needs of your company to ensure as little disruption as possible and protect your business from disaster. If your security is breached or your workplace is compromised, you still need to have access to all of your data. Disaster recovery (DR) planning makes that possible.

Business continuity (BC) is based on similar thinking, but on a larger scale. Disaster recovery is focused on your immediate recovery from incidents like natural disasters or data breaches. Business continuity is focused on maintaining the integrity of your systems and operations for the long term. These strategies protect your efficiency for years to come.

Allow Us to Build Your Disaster Recovery Plan for a Data Breach

An enterprise-level disaster recovery plan requires more than an external hard drive or another folder where you copy your files. Lang Company is prepared to equip your organization with data recovery services that back up the entirety of your data as frequently as every five minutes. We make it possible to recover this backed up data within moments, so your employees don't have to wait for some other data recovery company.

We've made recovering the data simple and straightforward because it makes more sense to just restore your data and get back to work than worrying about data loss, ransomware with encryption, or data theft. Cyber incidents are an unavoidable part of working on the internet. There are just too many threats and new malicious forms of technology out there to think that your data will always be safe. Disaster recovery and data backup from Lang Company ensures that when these incidents happen, you'll be equipped to bounce back quickly.

Why Is It Important to Have a Backup Plan?

We've talked a lot today about the importance of business continuity and disaster recovery planning. It should be clear why it's so important to have a backup plan in place. According to, medium and small businesses account for more than 43% of victims from data breaches in 2019. Many of these businesses were unprepared for these incidents and many small businesses will never fully recover from a large-scale data breach.
