Are you hearing a lot about data protection and thinking – what’s all the fuss? We talk a lot about protecting your data to raise awareness on the importance of this topic for all businesses. Small companies might have to close after losing vital business data and systems. Medium-sized businesses could lose key clients during outages. Any business, large or small, could be hit with fines for not protecting patient, financial, or other sensitive data. Not to mention the cost in man-hours to restore business operations.

There are a few things you can do to prepare:

  • Virtualization and cloud computing solutions create mobile workplaces, so employees can work from anywhere when the office is closed
  • With 4G Backup systems in place you can count on a reliable internet connection to keep everything running smoothly
  • Business data needs to be securely stored and backed up, preferably through off-site data centers or cloud solutions
  • Phone systems need to have call forwarding in place, so customers and partners can still reach you – this is easier with VoIP solutions
  • Review your business continuity plan with key employees and your IT adviser to ensure that everything is set up and ready for any potential damages
