How to Ensure Your Business Survives a Disaster

How to Ensure Your Business Survives a Disaster

It doesn’t matter where your business is located; whether it’s a tornado that rolls through your city, a structural fire that renders your office uninhabitable, or a freak snowstorm that brings down power lines or grinds travel to a halt, you’ll want to be ready for it all. We’ll go over what kinds of solutions your business can implement to ensure that no disaster, be it natural or artificial, like a cyberattack, puts a stop to your operations.

Data Backup Solutions for Longevity

Imagine what could happen to your business if you were to lose all access to your data. Even a disaster like a hardware failure could lead to data loss, and let’s not even get started on what could happen if your network were to fall victim to a malicious attack like a ransomware infection. In cases like this, it’s always in your best interest to have a data backup system in place. We recommend that you practice the 3-2-1 rule: three copies of your data, in two different locations, with one being stored offsite, preferably in an offsite data center to ensure that if you need to restore data quickly that it is ready and available. 

Cloud Solutions for Anywhere Access

If you can only do your job from your office, then you will be in for a rude awakening when you are forced into circumstances that prevent you from getting to the office… like, say, a global pandemic. In situations like these, having cloud-based solutions for anytime-anywhere access can make all the difference for your operations. Not only does it improve accessibility and reliability, as long as you have an Internet connection, it also dramatically improves productivity, as work can be done from anywhere on any device, as long as it supports an Internet browser. Basically, hosting data and applications in the cloud only helps your organization, and while you might have security concerns about its hosting, there are ways to get around these issues. Just ask one of our certified and trustworthy technicians about them!

A Plan of Action, Just In Case

You never know what could happen in business, so you’d best be prepared for just about anything. This includes having a plan for alternative operations in case your office isn’t accessible, having a clear line of succession in the event management is incapable of performing their duties, and ensuring continuity of your company’s vital operations in whatever capacity is necessary. A business continuity plan, thus, takes much more than just your technology into consideration; it’s a comprehensive look at your operations and how you can minimize the damage done by issues outside of your control.

Argentum IT LLC knows that dealing with disasters can be difficult, and while we hope you never stare a disaster in the face, we want to make sure you are always as best prepared to do so as possible.
