What would you do if, you could no longer access the files you need to do your job?
What would you do if, your power went out and you need to get work done?
What would you do if, your computer crashed and you had no back-up?
Well, I was reminded of all these questions this week when I heard from a colleague whose computer had crashed and she was unable to work on many of the tasks that she had in progress, because all the needed information and software tools were located on that computer.
Then, I received a call from a client that her access to her favorite online tool was “gone” and she could not access any of the information that she needed for her day. This was going to be a HUGE disaster.
Fortunately, both of these situations were resolved, but imagine for a moment if their data were truly lost, and no recovery of the data was possible? Imagine too, how these individuals felt before they knew if they would get their data recovered.
