When your network and data are housed in a central server room, either onsite or offsite, there is a range of disasters that can cause them to go offline. It could be fire, flood or any range of environmental factors disconnect your business systems, would you be able to continue operations? That is why disaster recovery is so critical to businesses of all sizes, so you can minimise your downtime and continue to service your customer and client base.
The Facebook Cambridge Analytica scandal demonstrated how data security breaches can impact an organisation, but it is not just large scale projects that can put a company at risk. An employee can set off a security breach by accidentally emailing a file to the wrong person. All businesses need to put in place plans and procedures to minimise risk and protect their information.
Technology is everywhere in the modern age, including small business where it is vital to stay updated to remain competitive.
Cybercrime has become a major problem in Australia, with over 114,000 reports of cybercrime registered with the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN) since 2014.

Cloud services are a massive industry with forecasts showing that Australians will spend $4.6 billion this year alone.
There are numerous reasons why so many small businesses are looking to the cloud for their data and system storage. Here are 10 reasons why you should consider making the switch today.
There is one thing which is certain in business and that is that things will go wrong at some point. It’s a matter of when, not if, disaster will strike. The key to recovering from any disaster is to be prepared. Taking a proactive approach in business can be the difference between an organisation surviving or folding. This is why having an effective disaster recovery (DR) plan is imperative to the survival of your business.
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.
