How do I prepare my business in case disaster strikes?
There are some things you can do that will help you in case disaster ever strikes your business or organisation. Ask yourself these questions:
- If disaster comes our way, what information or data is necessary for us to run this organisation or do our tasks?
- How important are your client and employee records, accounting and other company information?
- How can we store this critical information so that we can ‘proceed as normally as possible’ if disaster strikes our business?
Always back-up this information to another media source; one copy may stay in the office, but another should go to an off-site server or media that can be taken and stored off-site.
