Beyond Backups: Ready for Anything

112

Published on

New England’s ever changing weather conditions leave most organizations in this area vulnerable. We have seen more tropical storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards in the past few years than ever before. With proper planning, organizations have a much better chance of surviving Mother Nature’s wrath with minimal downtime and costs. But this means more than just having a tape backup of your data outside of the office.
In this presentation, Tim Weber will discuss the steps organizations should take in order to be prepared for any type of natural or unnatural disaster. He will offer guidance on ways to communicate within the organization, expectations that should be set,
how to manage and what the organization should be concerned about during difficult times.
