It used to be that keeping your company safe and secure during a weather emergency or natural disaster was pretty straightforward. Knowing what to do in cases of an emergency like a fire or an earthquake, or a severe weather warning meant not much more than having an emergency evacuation plan in place. Nowadays, a different kind of security and safety protocol is what we're faced with, especially in the business sector. Issues surrounding cyber security and data breaches online, and a growing number of national disasters occurring throughout the world, have left businesses and companies facing new challenges and risks. Many find themselves unprepared or struggle to implement adequate system securities and safety protections.
For many parts of the country, natural disasters are of great concern and among the leading causes of downtime. Natural disasters can often strike unexpectedly, causing major IT outages and service disruption. For this reason, if your region is susceptible to regular natural disasters, it is important to be prepared with a DR strategy.
