Is your company prepared for the worst?

One mistake can make or break your business; that’s the harsh reality of data-dependent businesses. Gone are the days of writing records by hand and filing information away into locked cabinets. Now every bit of data is at your fingertips—but it could all be gone in a flash.

According to PhoenixNAP, 93% of companies without disaster recovery procedures in place are out of business within one year of a major data disaster.

Your business can beat this statistic with the help of CTI’s SHIELDRecovery, an assessment that helps your company create, test, and execute a disaster recovery plan that will mitigate damage and reduce recovery time. Our expert consultants will help you understand how best to respond to unanticipated events that could jeopardize the future of your organization by following well-documented and organized recovery procedures.

Identifying Disasters

To prepare for disasters, you first need to conduct a risk assessment and business impact analysis. Many organizations don’t fully understand the magnitude of a disaster or disruption until it’s too late. Ask yourself: What could cause irreversible damage to my company’s data or reputation? Consider the following examples:

  • Natural disasters. Hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, floods, and more—the wrath of mother nature could bring an end to your business. But a natural disaster could do more than destroy your brick-and-mortar business; it can corrupt or destroy your data, which may be much more difficult to replace.
  • Ransomware attacks. Cybercrime is on the rise, which is bad news for businesses everywhere. With ransomware holding your data hostage, you’re dealt a losing hand: Pay an astronomical fee to the criminal in exchange for your data, or lose it forever.
  • Hardware/Software failures. They happen. Despite your best efforts to protect your data, unpredictable crashes or shortages can put your technology out of commission. If the damage is irreversible, you’ll suffer the consequences of confining your data to one home.

Turning a blind eye to these possibilities could come back to bite you. At CTI, your cybersecurity is our primary concern. SHIELDRecovery supports this very mission by providing you with trustworthy preemptive measures and unmatched expertise.

The Solution: SHIELDRecovery

SHIELDRecovery can be used in a number of industries, including financial, healthcare, and commercial operations. CTI will map out the overview of our solutions to your IT department or executives, including industry-specific threats or case-scenarios that relate to your concerns.

From there, we’ll begin an assessment of your current data operations and identify red flags. If any aspect of your data is at risk, we’ll construct a recovery plan to counteract those vulnerabilities. To ensure the effectiveness of the Disaster Recovery Plan, the customer should test their plan. If a test fails, recommendations and adjustments are made.

The goal of SHIELDRecovery is to get you back on your feet ASAP. The faster a company is able to respond to a disaster, the less likely it is to suffer serious repercussions. We take things one step further with our dependable preventative measures that are proven, secure, and compliant.
