Is your business taking these preventative measures?

  • When a key employee leaves the company – how do you train the next employee to take over the duties the former employee left?
  • Do you have procedures in implementing a business continuity and data protection plan?
  • What procedures do you have in place to maintain your business before and after a disaster?
  • Do your employees use good security practices to maintain the health of your company?

Many small to medium size businesses are not able to confidently answer these questions.  Many do not have a documented business continuity or disaster recovery plan in place to support their business in-case of a disaster.

dvaDataStorage has the experience to assist customers with assessing, developing, training and implementing these plans.  We spend time at customer sites working with our clients to understand how to protect their organization as they grow their business.

Training employees is key to security preparedness.  Having a documented plan will assist organizations when these events happen.

All small and medium size businesses should have three proactive strategies in place:

  • Business Plan
  • Business Continuity Plan
  • Disaster Recovery Plan

If you are a business that does not have these plans in place, now is the time to start preparing and not wait until something happens.  Call or mail us to make an appointment to meet and discuss how we can assist you in preventing these increasing threats to your business

“I've personally had the chance to work with Dan over this past year and could not be happier with my experience. His depth and breadth of knowledge of the Security, Data Recovery and Cloud Services industry is incredible, and his services are a lifesaver. I couldn't be happier with my experience and can highly recommend dvaDataStorage and Dan Velando without hesitation.”
