Everyone appreciates the need for data backup. Several methods are available in the marketplace, ranging from the DIY model using external hard drives that are manually swapped out to cloud-based methods where everything is automated. This part is easy. Two elements are often overlooked: One is testing the data backup. The other is data restoration. The only way to know your data is accurate is to do a test restore and verify completeness and accuracy. This should be done annually. Should the worst-case-scenario happen, where will you restore your backup? Think about the disruption to your business if you are down 2-3 days while waiting for a new server to be ordered, delivered, and configured. A better method is to use a backup service that also includes a temporary cloud server. This Disaster Recovery method not only protects your data, it also protects your business continuity in the days following a server failure.
Practices who are struggling financially look to save money anywhere and everywhere. Server failures can happen to anyone at anytime. Not being properly protected and/or losing 2-3 days of operational efficiency during a data restoration is a risk for all practices, especially for one already facing financial problems.
Practice data breeches are on the rise. Practice reputations can be destroyed and penalties are the personal responsibility of business owners. The first step of protection is Annual Risk Assessments. Struggling practices want to avoid even this expense, but it is a small price compared to a breech.
