Disasters, such as hurricanes and winter storms, plague our data centers on a frequent basis. Storm-related incidents have the potential to cause irreversible data loss and millions of dollars in downtime. In addition to these weather-related threats, human error also poses a huge threat to business data. Fat-finger deletions, cyber-hacks and unsatisfied employees are some of the risks that businesses face every day. Whatever the threat, it is important to understand the risks at hand, especially as we are in the midst of another winter that has already brought with it new threats to business data. For this slide show, eWEEK interviewed Ian McChord, vice present of product management for data protection provider Datto, who offered up an overview of lessons learned based on his work with the company's partners and customers, who have weathered many natural and human-made disasters. Perhaps already having had to deal with such disasters as Hurricane Sandy to the recent Winter Storm Jonas, companies of all sizes can appreciate the time it takes to create and maintain a proper business continuity plan.
