Are you ready for the next disaster?

Tips Every Business Should Know on Keeping Your IT Systems Safe

It’s always a good idea to be prepared with an emergency plan and supplies on hand during hurricane season. The same goes for your business.

To ensure you don't experience business disruption in a disaster, Pacxa recommends that you establish emergency preparation plans and a simple set of procedures to safeguard your data, including:

  • Keep emergency contact information for employees, critical vendors and insurance carriers so that you can reach them at a moment’s notice
  • Backup your data regularly, and especially before an impending disaster
  • Unplug all computers and equipment, cover with plastic and move them away from windows and off of floors
  • Consider storing your company’s data or backup in the cloud so that it will be protected during a disaster and accessible during the aftermath

If you don’t have dedicated IT staff, outsourced IT support services offer a valuable service for your everyday IT needs as well as in a disaster.
