Many companies confuse Backups with Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans and falsely believe they are completely covered from date disasters, which leaves them in a very vulnerable position once a disaster strikes. A Backup is a copy or archived point in time of your data, stored normally on a different media types like tapes, disks or cloud storage. This allows you to revert back in time to when a file is deleted, overwritten or corrupted.

A working backup does not mean that you have a Disaster Recovery or Business Continuity plan in place without a plan in place the business is at risk of failing in the event of a data disaster. In instances where business do not have a recovery plan in place it can take 7 days or longer to recovery from a Disaster event.

Unless you are regularly verifying backups and have a plan in place for a disaster event you may find that you could be non-compliant in regard to your industry regulations or your insurance requirements.
