Midland Computers Recovery Simulation Test


You are only as good as your last back up...how is your data?

Not only is your data your business and lifeblood, it needs to comply with many ISO requirements. Where is your data? When was it backed up? And more importantly what is your IT Disaster Recovery Plan...and how can you provide evidence?

“Many businesses do not realise the value of their data until it is too late. Others think that they have good backups, only to find them unreliable when needed.” – The Department of Trade and Industry.

Without fail, every year we receive panicked reports off customers who have not been able to resolve a backup, despite religiously backing up their data regularly. The problem can be missing files, wrong files or faulty media. Without support and an appropriate response in place, a business is left with no IT infrastructure and in turn, no way of operating their business effectively. Have a look on the internet…a quick search suddenly gives you frightening statistics on data loss due to recovery option failure…and the true cost to businesses like yours.

The problem has become more severe in recent years as backups have become more and more complex.
