The Checklist: 10 Things You Need in Place to Survive a Data Network Disaster

In order to remain in business, stay competitive, and keep yourself and your company safe from a data loss catastrophe, there is a fairly standardised checklist that should be followed if you expect to survive a data network disaster.

Here are 10 things you should have on your data network disaster prevention checklist:

  1. A bulletproof business continuity plan. This is perhaps the Can’t-do-without element in the world of IT support and protection. It allows a given entity to continue doing business through any cyber threat, data breach, or natural disaster, such as fire, flood, or earthquake that destroys part or all of a physical IT framework. Effective business continuity can occur because of cloud-based or offsite backup, which allows remote access to data via cloud servers.
  2. A firm disaster recovery plan and policy. As a subset (and very necessary) part of Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, or DR, is essential to keeping a healthy IT network and a future in doing business in a Web-based or cybernetic manner. It involves the employment of a set of procedures or policies that ensure the recovery of data which is vital to business operations and continuation, generally through cloud-based means.
  3. Employee cyber safety policies in the workplace. Employee cyber safety training and strict policies will cut down significantly on the risk of incurring a serious data breach and any subsequent data loss, downtime, or threat to the company’s future operations.
  4. Antivirus protections on all computers on the network. Using effective antivirus software on all the computer terminals on your IT network will ensure the filtering out of spam, email phishing, malware and other exploits.
  5. Implementing the right software updates. They may be annoying to most of us, but studies show that it’s a bad idea to ignore the pop-ups from Microsoft and other tech or software platforms. If you don’t want to leave it to your staff to do, have an IT support team that can force updates and upgrades overnight, to eliminate the ignorance of these important updates.
  6. Cloud computing to cut down on overhead cost and data liability. Being able to use cloud computing services to collaborate on projects saves cost and liability in so many ways. Imagine what is saved on travel costs alone, to be able to telecommute or teleconference via shared docs in Office 365, Exchange, and other programs that streamline business productivity and ensure data disaster recovery.
  7. Regular network system checks. This should be done by an IT professional or support team, and will analyse and report any deficiencies in your IT network’s infrastructure.
  8. Performing regular PC maintenance. Performing regular PC maintenance has a built-in checklist of its own which includes:
  • Daily data backup
  • Weekly scans for malware
  • Monthly disk defrags
  • Monthly scanning of your hard drive for errors
  • Twice-per-year backing-up of hard drive as an image
  1. Semi-regular server maintenance checks. A 12-point server maintenance checklist, as part of healthy server management, should include such steps as backup verification, updating of your OS and control panel, changing passwords, and the checking of remote management tools, server utilisation, and system security.

  2. Having pro-active data loss prevention measures in place. This can include cybersecurity, intrusion detection, and prevention, firewalls, antivirus software, cloud-based storage and software services, and can come as a “turnkey solution” with the right IT company and performance-assurance systems on the job.

Let Us Put a Stake Through the Heart of the Cyber-Vampires!

You stand a much better chance clearing your IT mansion of ghosts and ghouls with a managed service provider (MSP) and its ability to supplement the in-house IT staff of small to mid-sized businesses with both traditional offerings and scalable vendor management services that’ll be sure to prevent data network disasters.

We’ve taken the traditional definition of what an MSP is and have expanded upon it, offering much more as an IT service provider than the “textbook definition”.

Our clients from multiple industries and market sectors have helped us to expand our own horizons in the IT world. We’ve pushed the envelope of what an IT service provider can and should do in the 21st Century – and this Halloween we hope you’ll vow: No more cyber-spooks, period!

Does Your Melbourne IT Company Truly Have All the Right Tools Available?

The cyber-vampires know full well that if you don’t have quality IT consultants (and for many companies, managed IT services) in your corner, you’re risking everything from a compliance violation to catastrophic data center downtime to a unrecoverable cyber breach.

And, by then it’s generally too late to call upon an IT service provider in Melbourne like us for help preventing data network disasters and staying secure, compliant, and cyberattack-free.

From server and desktop virtualisation that saves you money and streamlines your IT productivity to being a closely-collaborating vCIO to being your disaster recovery specialists who can help you weather any type of adversity – Invotec has staked our reputation on being able to do more for our customers in greater Melbourne and Brisbane.

Sure, we can recover a hard drive or mitigate the effects of a malware virus, but it’s much, much simpler and easier to give us a call ahead of disaster and prevent data network disasters via predictable, fixed monthly fee.

We have the perfect tricks and treats to make you our next satisfied customer!
