Hurricane season has begun. And while keeping your business safeguarded for any potential disaster is important year-round, the next five months are especially critical. Hurricane Season runs June 1 through November 30, peak season being August through October, ample time for a storm to hit. Severe weather can slow down your business significantly or derail it altogether.
It’s essential to have business continuity and disaster-recovery plans in place to ensure that you can maintain “business as usual”—or return to it as quickly and painlessly as possible in the event of a major disruption.
Creating a business continuity strategy is an important way of mitigating risk, including exponential cost and loss of business. A Disaster Recovery Plan provides the details and processes needed to ensure your IT systems and operations can be restored after an event like a hurricane.
In the event of a disaster, a cloud-based business continuity solution allows you to instantly launch virtual copies of your entire environment. An effective design that encompasses backup and data replication, will automate as many processes as possible in the event of disaster, ensuring that computing resources remain operational. Today, comprehensive data protection is an option for everyone. And TRUE can help you put your business continuity and disaster recovery plans in place.
It’s important to remember that hurricanes are strong storms that can be life-threatening as well as cause serious property-threatening hazards such as flooding, storm surge, high winds and tornadoes. Preparation is the best protection against the dangers of a hurricane. For your convenience, we have put together a Hurricane Preparedness Checklist that covers steps to be taken at each stage of a storm.
