Backup Strategy & Disaster Recovery

All successful businesses have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place. Why? Because failure to do so can lead to loss of customers (or their trust), which is just as catastrophic. After all, your clients are entrusting you with their data – and in many cases – personal information, including their name, credit card details, and address. According to the Underwriting Guide for Insurers, only 6% of mid-sized companies that suffer catastrophic data loss ever recover.

Moreover, a small business like yours might be just starting out in its field—your reputation will be one of the most important components of your small business. If you sully it by failing to protect sensitive information, recovering might be very complicated.

PRO can help you in creating a disaster recovery plan and securing all your important data with a relevant backup strategy, so you can have an affordable and reliable insurance plan for your business.

Having a backup is a great way to secure your company—it is flexible, centralized and extremely convenient. With PRO, you can choose between local and cloud backup. Local backup is good for companies that might have a rather slow Internet connection, since uploading files to the cloud will use some bandwidth. The other reason many small businesses turn to local backup is privacy concerns, since cloud computing is still somewhat new, and some people prefer to keep their files close to them.
The benefits for cloud backup are numerous—starting from protection from physical disasters (floods, technology failing, etc.), being able to get to your files online, just being able to enjoy the safety without having to contribute to the hardware, and more.

 

A well-thought-out IT Disaster Recovery Plan doesn’t just offer storage space for data.
It also includes a backup strategy, so your employees are familiar with the measures that will be taken in case of a disaster.
Similarly, a good disaster plan also requires another crucial element, i.e., constant monitoring. At PRO, we offer an effective and reliable backup protection to our clients that we will keep monitoring. This proactive approach will help us spot problems (such as hardware failing or backups not automatically backing up) much earlier in the game and resolve them as quickly as possible without them snowballing into a costlier issue.

 

As a small business owner, you might be wondering why do you need a disaster recovery plan in the first place. The loss of important data, including emails, accounting details, client information, patient and company records, happens more often than you would think. Actually, the amount of information on a computer’s hard drive compared to the amount backed up, is (on average) only 6%. Imagine running a business at only 6% efficiency. Good luck—you’re going to need it.
PRO will help you come up with a customized plan of action on how to continue when catastrophy hits, and how to recover from it efficiently. We will ensure you will have a plan B and a catastrophy will just end up being a hiccup. 

 

What We Bring To The Table

Florian

I was born and raised in Romania and in 2002 I gave up my French school plans for a fresh start in the US. After many unsuccessful attempts to join a company as a computer technician, I learned web design and search engine optimization and started to do home visits, helping people with their computer problems – that’s how PRO got started.

PROs

Adores his company and clients, coming up with improvement ideas on the daily. And he buys the rest of us lunch!

Cons

Wants everything to be done NOW (including lunch deliveries). Makes ordering lunch a national crisis.

Adin

I used to spend a lot more of my free time with electronics. Now you're more likely to find me hiking or biking and enjoying nature and a simple peaceful life. But I'll never completely give up my tech toys. I've come to love my drone and making short videos about travel and life. After living in Chicago for 6 years, I'm now a digital nomad, working from Europe. 

PROs

Makes the 8-hour time zone difference work for everyone and is a superhero at helping clients + coworkers. Always asks you how you are.

Casey

I moved to Chicago in 2016 from Williamston, Michigan where I had my own computer repair company. When I'm not saving the city from certain technological doom, I'm either binge-watching Netflix, reading comics, playing video games or jamming on the guitar.

PROs

Has an unlimited amount of patience. He is also crazy good at mimicking any accent and sound.

Cons

Flings rubber bands at coworkers when they least expect it.

Laura

I moved to Chicago from Estonia just a few years back. I have worked as a translator for about 5 years and still do that on the side. Everyone who knows me will also get regular updates about my adorable Siamese cat whom I brought with me from Estonia. I'm also an avid reader, love astronomy and play more Dead by Daylight than I'd like to admit.

PROs

Shares food all the time. Also has a better American English accent than most Americans here.

Cons

Leaves energy drinks on her desk for days at a time and continues to drink them days later. Also misses 90% of the time when attempting to throw gum in the trash.
