What may seem like a no-brainer for larger organizations and corporations, for the small or midsized business, setting up a disaster recovery plan can often be deprioritized in favor of what may seem like more pressing concerns. However, this can be a very dangerous mistake. According to an estimate from the Small Business Administration, 43 percent of small businesses never recover after an IT disaster. This is hardly surprising; if you lose the contents of your customer database, for example, you have effectively lost your entire business. The stark fact is that no SMB can withstand a major data loss, particularly the loss of vital client information.
