IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data storage, backup and recovery, announced the launch of its second annual Disaster Recovery Awareness Month. Throughout the month of July, businesses can sign up for a one-hour disaster recovery assessment and download free disaster recovery planning guides and samples. According to the Small Business Administration, one out of every four businesses never reopens after a disaster.
The free disaster recovery planning materials include
- The Essential Guide to Disaster Recovery and Continuity Planning
- Disaster Recovery Planning Guide
- Sample Disaster Recovery Plan
"Paragon is in the information management business and delivering key data backup and recovery technologies has been a cornerstone of the company since its inception," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. "We are partnering with the Business Recovery Group Consulting team to move beyond just the technologies involved in a successful business continuity program by promoting free guides, sample plans and a one-hour assessment to help companies be proactive in preparing a comprehensive Disaster Recovery Plan before a disaster strikes."
During the year, any number of natural occurrences can have an effect on a business: hurricanes, massive thunderstorms, fires, tornados, heat waves, earthquakes, blizzards, ice storms, and floods. "Hurricane Sandy demonstrated that even after a perceived danger timeframe has passed, a late-season storm can hit," warns Paragon DR planning consultant Collier Johnson. "In addition, a disaster recovery plan is also needed to recover quickly from site outages, where your office building is not accessible for your employees due to a local disaster, or an isolated incident, for example water damage, structural issues with the building, local power outage, or a local fire."
June 1st marked the first day of hurricane season; Tropical Storm Andrea, the first storm of the season, developed four days later. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) expects a very active hurricane season for 2013.
