Have you heard the news? “Frankenstorm” is heading our way! Hurricane Sandy is combining with other weather systems during a full moon – creating the recipe for the perfect storm. We all were entertained by the 2000 hit movie, The Perfect Storm, but we may not find ourselves as amused by the potential damaging effects of this super storm.

With impending extensive and expensive damages, have you made sure your IT systems are backed up? Although we are hoping this storm loses momentum and we avoid any losses, we want to take a moment to revisit our Disaster Recovery Plan. Just like you would prepare for a hurricane (board up windows, stack sandbags, etc.), you also want to be prepared to protect your IT systems in the event a disaster such as this perfect storm should happen.

Although we never like to think about the worst case scenario or anything devastating ever happening to our businesses, reality is, these tragedies do occur. Because of this, it is in your best interest to take a few moments to evaluate how your business would be affected if your IT systems were damaged. Would you be able to respond to that urgent email from your most valued client? Would you be able to submit that document in time for your hard and fast deadline? Would you lose all your client data? Would you lose all that time spent working on your latest project? You may be more dependent on your IT systems than you realize!

We at SolutionWorx are doing everything we can to prevent a technology disaster for ourselves and our clients should Frankenstorm turn out to be as scary as it sounds. If you are not sure where to start to prepare your business for disaster, please give us a call so we can help you have the peace of mind to sleep at night knowing that your business could continue running in the morning — even if the building was no longer there.
