BakBone Software, a global provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, reveals the top 10 steps companies should follow when safeguarding critical business operations in the event of a disaster. The checklist has been designed as a guideline for streamlining the development of a comprehensive plan to maintain the availability of key applications and business functions, minimize the risk of data or productivity losses, and reduce the negative impact on financial performance due to any kind of disruption.

According to Gartner Inc., 40 percent of companies that experience a significant interruption in operations go out of business within two years of the event. However, having an appropriate business continuity plan will help lessen the impact of these events and accelerate business resumption. "Simply looking at the news headlines on any given day is a reminder of why companies need to put the necessary steps in place to ensure business continuity," said Ken Horner, senior vice president of corporate strategy and development for BakBone. "BakBone's ten-step guide cuts through the confusion on how to implement a business continuity strategy by blending technology and business best practices to help companies individually tailor and successfully implement plans to protect their businesses."
