Is your company’s network prepared for the next disaster? Disasters to a network don’t just include fires and earthquakes, but also viruses, hackers, system failures and the like.
Despite all of the precautions that can be taken to secure a network against attacks from viruses, hackers and other threats, there is always the possibility that a catastrophe could occur. Does your company have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan? Is any of your critical data backed up off-site? A good plan will ensure that your business will continue, that your customers will still be able to contact you, and that all of your records will be available in the event of a disaster.
Keeping your data and records secure is only half of the battle. What is each employee supposed to do in the event of a disaster? How does your data get restored? Who does it? All of these questions should be answered in a good disaster plan so that in the event that something terrible happens, everyone knows what they are supposed to do, how to do it, and a major disaster is converted into a minor one.
