3 Basic Contingency Planning Tips To Safeguard Your Company From Disaster
data protection services, the ideal of Zephyr Networks is to make contingency planning unnecessary for our clients. Nevertheless, ideals are ideals and realities are realities. When natural disasters strike like Hurricane Katrina, Tropical Storm Sandy or the Northridge Earthquake, sometimes damage is done that cannot be helped. But contingency planning can help protect your valuable information and keep your business moving forward.
The key to contingency planning does not mean having grandiose plans. Rather, you should focus on the basics by protecting the core of your service operations and keeping communication channels open. By focusing on the basics of what is needed, your company can continue to operate beyond the difficulties presented.
3 Contingency Planning Tips to Ensure Continued Operations:
1) Protect your computer equipment as best you can on a safe external server. With most documents now being stored in an electronic format, if you lose your server, you lose everything. With cloud computing, there is no need for this to happen.
2) Have the essential contact information for your employees in a safe place that is easily accessible. If disaster strikes, have a meet-up place that will be accessible no matter what beyond the apocalypse or nuclear war.
3) By safeguarding the key info of your company and ensuring that business will continue, use this information to boost employee morale. Let the employees know that you are on the job and focused on keeping the company on a positive track. Employees who know you have protected the business and their future employment will be that much more willing to go the extra mile to get the business back on track.
