    Information Technology plays a crucial role when it comes to daily business operations regardless of its size. It covers every information and data storage of business from the capital, income, and profits. With regards to business operations and software being used to make all data safe, there are instances where uncontrollable circumstances and files get corrupted. In getting away with this, a disaster recovery plan is needed to avoid data loss. That said, try to scan and examine the points discussed below on how you can prepare to have a successful disaster recovery planning. Invent a Disaster Recovery Plan It is the primary process when you create a disaster recovery plan. It can be undertaking because you have a lot of scenarios and options to consider. Regardless of all the things that you are going on your business, it is crucial so that all data are safe. To start the process of planning, consider what is essential so that your business keeps running. It includes application access and email, equipment, and database backup. If necessary, you also need to add the recovery time objective or the duration of the recovery. Track Implementation When you have successfully established a disaster recovery plan, you have, and it's implementation. This recovery plan should serve as a breathing and living document which is updated when needed. Furthermore, proactive monitoring like data replication and storage backup also helps in reducing the risk of IT issues and crisis. Disaster Recovery Plan Testing There was a study conducted, and most Senior IT experts said that majority of the companies rarely test their disaster recovery plan. It is the main reason that when a crisis occurs, loss of revenue is massive and affected companies have a hard time to recover. That said, it is always best when you run and test disaster recovery plan twice or more within a year. Also, create a realistic situation of emergency situations and apply your disaster plan. It must include the things you need to do before and after the emergency situation. Execute Storage and Off-Site Data Backup Any holocaust that endangers to close out the business is more likely to access an on-site data impossible. The primary concern for backup and storage is to create security within the crisis. A backup file should be created via a secure method to make sure that it is usable. Consequently, upon establishing a backup data solution, every business needs to foresee the time in the middle of the last backup and when the crisis occurs. It also means that backing up the data should be done at least once daily to maintain continuous data protection. Conduct Data Restoration Tests Restoration tests are to be performed monthly for validation if it can hold during a disaster. Disk to disk systems and tape backups are both useful when doing restoration tests. Both of which has different uses and advantages. Backup PC’s The purpose of backup PC’s and laptops is to make sure that there is working equipment in case of a damaged workstation. Most of the time, users only store relevant files on local systems. Thus, it is prone to data loss. Duplicates Having duplicate servers is essential because it provides an alternative way of accessing data which are vital during the planning. If you have duplicate servers off-site, this can give you an efficient recovery downtime of an arisen disaster. Theft Recovery Investment The theft recovery solutions are helpful especially when locating, recovering, and returning lost computers. It is the main reasons why a business needs to have theft recovery investment to secure any data deletion to avoid the release of personal and sensitive information. Virus Pattern Installment Most often companies don’t focus on email securities until such time that viruses and malware destroy their working computers. Companies need to be reminded all the time to put attention on installing virus updates. It is the primary requirement when you create a disaster recovery plan because it helps to prevent the crisis from occurring. Get a Regular Managed Service Provider Security and date policy of your business is the number one thing that you should protect. Most middle and large scale business consider in getting an MSP (Managed Service Provider) because they have servers, storage, and network infrastructure that are up-to-date and reliable. Similarly, they have excellent disaster recovery planning and can manage any crisis that can occur at any given time. Takeaway In identifying the vital components of disaster recovery planning, every business must face a compromising and high level of sacrifice for a cost. Every organization needs to understand that industry sometimes faces a crisis where third party hackers invade data and security. In fact, this is common especially if you own medium and large scale of business. If you consider the things mentioned above as part of your well-structured recovery planning, rest assured that your company can quickly recover from any unforeseen emergency; thus, avoiding business loss and interruption.

    Between 2016 and 2017, the number of recorded data breaches in the United States rose by nearly 70%. That trend is predicted to continue for the foreseeable future. Businesses, now more than ever, must take steps to ensure that the data of their customers is secure from every possible threat. That means data leaks, ransomware, physical theft, and more. The following five steps are things any business can do to maintain a respectable level of data security. Evaluate the Tools You're Using Not all tools are created equal. Some “free” versions offered as alternatives of popular software are full of things that could or are meant to sabotage your security. That doesn't mean you can't use open source software but if you choose to do so, make it a priority to keep up with its development and an eye out for reports of any newly found or exploited vulnerabilities. Proprietary software, on the other hand, may not be safer outright, but it does take less time to maintain. In either case, make sure that whatever digital tools you use are backed by a reputable company or organization, for-profit or not-for-profit. Always ask what history they have, what support they offer, and what their update schedule looks like. Evaluate Who Has Access to Your Data As hard as it may be to believe, according to IBM's Cyber Security Intelligence Index 2016, 60% of all attacks on business data were carried out by or with the help of insiders. These insiders are often employees. However, many of them may not have been aware of how they assisted in a given breach or attack. People don't always leak data on purpose. Cybercriminals will try to trick you and your employees in search of sensitive data or a vulnerability. They will steal an employees identity or forge a fake one. Keeping track of who knows what, having specific ways to identify employees, and training people to spot information gathering attempts is key to preventing everyday employees from accidentally giving a criminal access to sensitive business data. Set Up Offsite Backups One of the most straightforward steps any business owner can take to ensure that their data remains safe from any disaster to is to automate data backup and recovery. While the right recovery system for any given business will vary, there are a few things the best systems have in common. Automatic Backups and Restoration Points – One of the main benefits of a professional solution is ease of use. If you still have to sign off and sit through every backup yourself, or a team member does, you could do better. Scalability – The solution you use should be capable of growing as your business does and the pricing should scale to match. Onsite and Offsite Cloud Options – Some businesses prefer to have their "cloud" onsite and under their guard while still being managed by a professional data storage company. Others prefer the whole operation offsite.  Full-Service Support and Assistance – Any reputable backup company should be available to talk you through the recovery process and be available anytime you need support. Make Sure All of Your Digital Tools Are Up-to-Date Security vulnerabilities are found all the time. That's what patches are for- to seal them up and help keep your company's data safe. You must regularly patch all of your tools and applications, no matter how infrequently they are used--especially if they are linked to a more extensive system of devices. These patches may be applied automatically if the option exists for a given tool and is enabled. Both of these things are key. Many businesses gloss over patching unaware that doing so means there are known exploitation in their system. Have a System in Place for Reporting Suspicious Activity and Resolving It If, for instance, one employee gets an email on Monday that's phishing for information, and they send it to their spam folder, that may seem like things have taken care of themselves. However, another employee may receive a similar yet slightly different email on Wednesday and respond to it or download something from it. This could endanger your company's data. If there had been a secure reporting system in place, this might have been prevented. The email from Monday could have been added to a blacklist and instructions could have been sent to other employees alerting them to the attempt and giving them steps to follow in case someone attempted to contact them in a similar manner. The same system could apply to phone calls or digital tools "acting up." A system should be in place to deal with threats like these and offer people within the company to use their better judgment to keep the company safe. This process can also help with the further development of in-house security protocols.

    We don’t realize how good we have it in the digital era. The idea of today’s technology would of had even the wisest man shocked. After all, we live in the world of drones, virtual reality technology and self-driving cars. Technology has truly made a difference to the way that we live our everyday lives. Including the way that businesses are run on a daily basis. One of the big marketing elements that technology has influenced is lead generation. Which just so happens to be a pretty important part of running any business! Through this article we plan to go through some of the biggest influencer technologies companies can use to improve their lead generation. Hopefully, by the end, you will have a few more ideas to capture the interest of new leads for your business. The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence “Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So, instead of artificial intelligence I think it will augment our intelligence.”  - Ginni Rometty. Okay, so I know there has been a ton of controversy where artificial intelligence is concerned. Despite the fear that robots will take over the world, as of right now - there is no doubt about the impact that AI has had on lead generation for businesses. There are implementations of artificial intelligence, where the algorithm contacts thousands of leads a day, while promoting natural conversation. The potential of this alone is enough to ensure 26-percent of all businesses are aligning themselves for AI implementations in the coming year. The Ability To Bring The Product You Offer Right Into Your Customers Homes Let’s take a quick trip in the time machine. 30-years ago, the only way to see the product that you wanted to buy was to walk into the brick and mortar store. 23-years ago, there was a huge leap! Ebay was founded in 1995 and the era of online marketing and shopping was created. Consumers could now see a 2D version of the product that they wanted to invest in. Today, however not only can consumers see the product that they want right from the comfort of their couch. But thanks to augmented reality, businesses are able to show consumers exactly how their product solves problem in the consumers every day life. It also helps customers visualize products in their home. Thanks to this, 60-70% of all consumers see the benefits of AR, and admit it helps them see the value of a product in their home or daily life. Reducing The Cost Of Operations AI has more potential then simply finding ideal consumers to target on behalf of businesses. However, this simple procedure has helped businesses reduce the cost of lead generation by almost 60%. Which is crazy in the business world. But there is more to it then just that. There are other technologies that can also help businesses stay on top of their stock, streamline the pipeline and reduce operational cost. From inventory management software right down to organizational tools - the world is a businesses oyster. Content Creation And Market Targeting This particular point will make B2B marketers breathe a sigh of relief. Back in the day, B2B marketers had to invest a large portion of their time in content creation, targeting and marketing. Nevermind social media marketing management. But now there are content automation platforms such as buffer that can take over the majority of repetitive publishing tasks. Of course, thanks to AI being synchronized with these platforms - they are also able to help content marketers determine exactly what they need to focus on to attract ideal customers, and well… improve lead generation. Finally, the same CRM platform can also be used as an organizational management tool to help keep your pipeline up to date. Keep your team members informed. Most importantly of all?

The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence “Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So, instead of artificial intelligence I think it will augment our intelligence.”  - Ginni Rometty. Okay, so I know there has been a ton of controversy where artificial intelligence is concerned. Despite the fear that robots will take over the world, as of right now - there is no doubt about the impact that AI has had on lead generation for businesses. There are implementations of artificial intelligence, where the algorithm contacts thousands of leads a day, while promoting natural conversation. The potential of this alone is enough to ensure 26-percent of all businesses are aligning themselves for AI implementations in the coming year. The Ability To Bring The Product You Offer Right Into Your Customers Homes Let’s take a quick trip in the time machine. 30-years ago, the only way to see the product that you wanted to buy was to walk into the brick and mortar store. 23-years ago, there was a huge leap! Ebay was founded in 1995 and the era of online marketing and shopping was created. Consumers could now see a 2D version of the product that they wanted to invest in. Today, however not only can consumers see the product that they want right from the comfort of their couch. But thanks to augmented reality, businesses are able to show consumers exactly how their product solves problem in the consumers every day life. It also helps customers visualize products in their home. Thanks to this, 60-70% of all consumers see the benefits of AR, and admit it helps them see the value of a product in their home or daily life. Reducing The Cost Of Operations AI has more potential then simply finding ideal consumers to target on behalf of businesses. However, this simple procedure has helped businesses reduce the cost of lead generation by almost 60%. Which is crazy in the business world. But there is more to it then just that. There are other technologies that can also help businesses stay on top of their stock, streamline the pipeline and reduce operational cost. From inventory management software right down to organizational tools - the world is a businesses oyster. Content Creation And Market Targeting This particular point will make B2B marketers breathe a sigh of relief. Back in the day, B2B marketers had to invest a large portion of their time in content creation, targeting and marketing. Nevermind social media marketing management. But now there are content automation platforms such as buffer that can take over the majority of repetitive publishing tasks. Of course, thanks to AI being synchronized with these platforms - they are also able to help content marketers determine exactly what they need to focus on to attract ideal customers, and well… improve lead generation. Finally, the same CRM platform can also be used as an organizational management tool to help keep your pipeline up to date. Keep your team members informed. Most importantly of all? Ensure you are developing new leads, and targeting new markets on a daily basis.

    Data corruption is not something, which cannot happen in your business. But as a smart entrepreneur, you need to be ready and on standby condition all the time. You cannot take this situation for granted. And you know it why?  The moment you find that your data is lost, all those hours, weeks and years of hard work will be put into bin in just a single day.  Do not let this situation arise in your place of work. Backing up the data is a strategy and not a necessity any more, especially, when you know that we are living in the age of Bigdata and Data Science.Data backup and recovery is not a terse thing to go for. You need only basic technical knowledge. Types of Data backups Different types of data ask for different types of data, and therefore, it is necessary that you increase your knowledge on all those backups. Partial Backup – This is not a complete backup, and therefore, operating systems and application software are not backed up. In this type of backup, there are only few set of files and folders for which the back up is created.  The backup can only be restored back after you have reinstalled the operating system as well as the computer programs.There will not be any type of data loss whatsoever during the transfers. Partial backups are more time consuming than anything else but are considered quite cheap. Total Backup – It implies that all data, which is on the computer will be taken for backup. It is not a time efficient way of taking the backup.  All data is transferred to CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs, and in this process, there may be data loss if the hard drive is defective. Total Backup with Imaging – In this type of data backup, system’s image is created. In this way, a single system file is created, which has all the data stored in it.The biggest advantage to go for this type of data backup is that all your system files, operating systems, application programs and config data files are stored. Your computer will return back to original state, i.e. the state before the backup. The Types of Hardware Used for Backups Backups are taken either on the mainframe computers, or network drives or dedicated networks. The whole idea is to keep the files safe and secured all the time. You cannot take files or other data for granted. The hardware comprises USB Flash Drives, or Pen and Thumb drives, Writable CD-ROM discs, Writable DVD discs, Writable Blu-Ray discs, External Hard Drives, and Digital Tape.   It is also significant to understand as to which type of hardware will provide you with good back. Again, you need to analyse the requirements of data backup depending on your business requirements. Conclusion Backing up crucial information in the form of data requires a serious consideration. It is important for the success of your business. You cannot run your business without data, and which is the reason that you need Microsoft office 365 backup all the time.
