Computer disasters exist and people who think that only happens to others are wrong. The causes for these disasters are immense: inadequate infrastructure, unskilled professionals, lack of security software, among many others. In this article, we’ll talk about the phases of a computer disaster and give you some tips so you can protect yourself and avoid these situations in the future!
After a disaster, and if the company is not properly protected, a wave of concern arises. “Did we lose all the data?”: the affirmative answer to this question can result in a fall in productivity and will be reflected in the profit of the company. The company, at this early stage of the computer disaster, feels lost and cannot reorganize itself in order to continue to produce normally.
Acceptance and understanding phase
After the initial phase of panic and concern, it’s time to look at the real impact the disaster will have on the company. Thus, it is necessary to evaluate what needs to be done, what data were most affected, among other essential aspects to the good functioning of the company.
Phase of redoing what was already done
This is the stage where you will have to organize the work that had already been done previously. Sometimes a computer disaster destroys work done years ago. It is important to be aware that at this stage the old work and the current work will overlap, which will make the workload of the employees increase significantly. It is necessary to make a good time management so as not to lose the old work and at the same time do not harm the current tasks.
After all the confusion generated by the computer disaster, it’s time to get back to normal. It will not be an easy task, since a computer disaster always leaves sequels, but gradually the company will return to its usual routine. It is crucial that after such a situation, companies protect themselves and ensure that in future disasters they have control over their data.
Disaster Recovery Plans
Disaster recovery plans are essential for planning actions that ensure that a disaster doesn’t harm with the company’s performance. In addition to this proactive action, the disaster recovery plans also have a reactive action, through the action of executing emergency actions, previously planned and that guarantee the immediate resolution of problems. Disaster recovery is still defined as the set of procedures to be performed in crisis situations. The ultimate goal is to save your company data so your information stays safe and sound.
