It’s still hurricane season and with the unpredictability of storms, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Take time to make sure your records and vital business information is secure.
When planning for a disaster, ask yourself the following questions:
- Can I access my information 24/7? Make sure you can access your backup information anytime. For extra reassurance, seek out a solution that will convert hard copy files into an electronic format which can be accessed through a secure online “virtual” file room.
- Is important information backed up? Typically, the more effort a business owner puts into preparing and storing backups of both hard copy and electronic files, the easier it will be to recover from a hurricane. Once the information is backed up, store copies in multiple locations and consider offsite backup tape storage.
- Are files and our disaster recovery plan securely stored? Find a secure records storage location that will withstand high sustained winds and protect information from falling into the wrong hands.
