Disaster or Inconvenience? You Decide!

Ask most people to define the word “disaster” and they’ll tell you it’s something catastrophic, like an earthquake or a hurricane. Ask those same people if something like a brown out or an air conditioner failure qualifies as a disaster as well, and they’ll likely say no. They’d probably characterize those last two as inconvenient events. And they’d be right.

That is unless those inconvenient events were the cause of a network failure that resulted in the loss of all their customer data. Then there’s no question that those inconvenient events qualify as disasters.

Unfortunately, too many organizations maintain a false sense of security when it comes to backup and disaster recovery. They feel safe because their business isn’t located in a flood zone or doesn’t sit on a geological fault line.

At TECA, we’ve found that many of the disasters our clients experience are seldom big ones, like a building fire. More often, data loss is a result of a burst pipe leaking water into a data center, a power surge that blows out a server, or ransomware infiltrating their network.

Business today runs on data, which is why it’s critical that you have a plan in place in the event of a disaster, big or small.

True or False?

Since many of us are still in lockdown and spending LOTS of time on our streaming services, movies are again the trivia topic this month. To be specific, disaster movies. True or False:

  1. Independence Day, in which the White House is blown up (among other things) is based on actual events.
  2. In Dante’s Peak, Linda Hamilton, along with Pierce Brosnan, must convince a town that its residents are in imminent danger from a grumbling volcano nearby.
  3. The movie Twister was inspired by the board game of the same name.
