What would happen if your office burned down? If there was a flood? If your data was compromised by ransomware? Would your data survive? Could your company recover? Do you have a plan? CIOs are asked these questions every day and, often, these questions keep them up at night. Knowing that your company is protected in the event of a disaster is priceless.
