I'm surprised how many small businesses don't backup their data, let alone have some sort of disaster recovery plan in place. A disaster can range from a PC failure to total destruction of your office and all it's contents. Statistically small businesses have shallow pockets and are the most likely to fail in the event of a disaster.

As we all become more reliant on IT and the internet how long can your business survive without access to electronic data and systems? How could you keep the business running without billing customers or winning new business? Don't just think about technology though, but things like cheque books and contracts.
