Technology is everywhere in the modern age, including small business where it is vital to stay updated to remain competitive.
In days gone by, businesses used to deal with the possibility of risk by buying good insurance. Although still important these days, it is not enough to ensure survival. Businesses need to identify risk, then take action to mitigate those challenges and improve their chances of recovery. In short, organisations need to take steps to build business resilience to ensure work can continue when—not if—a crisis hits.
A natural disaster can be devastating for business, especially if it means downtime or the loss of critical information. In Australia and New Zealand, we are subject to a raft of natural disasters that include cyclones, earthquakes, fires and severe storms and flooding.
These disasters can deal out heavy damage to business premises and the server and IT technology housed within. How would you respond if a natural disaster impacted you? How long would you be out of business for? And would some—or all—of your data be lost forever?
When you are setting up or upgrading existing IT operations in small business, there are many new technologies and considerations to factor in.
Here is your ultimate checklist to ensure all your IT needs are met and that your data and business operations are secure and available to access by all staff members.
