Preparing your IT for a Storm
As you read in our last post: Are You Prepared to Weather an Outage?, business continuity before, during, and after a disaster takes preparation. A hurricane warning, for example, does not provide enough time to adequately prepare for continued business continuity.
If your business doesn’t yet have a thought out and planned business continuity approach, we advise these immediate-term steps related to your IT and computer systems:
- Consider unplugging your personal computer, monitor and printer if they are not attached to a surge protector. A sudden power surge could damage computer equipment.
- Elevate your computers/hardware off the floor if you are on ground level/ flat zone/flood prone area.
- Take the latest, verified, successful Data Backups with you off-site.
