Hope for the best, plan for the worst

What would happen if your organization was hit with a catastrophic loss? Even though it may not be the most enjoyable process to think about, it’s good to go over the “what ifs” to protect your business should a catastrophic loss of data or physical location occur, whether it be a flood, fire, or hurricane. Do you have a plan should one of these natural disasters hit your business?

To begin, my recommendation would be to start by asking yourself and your trusted co-workers, “How would we return to business after a catastrophic loss of data or facilities?” This question should get the process started on what steps would need to be taken to get your business back up and running to serve customers again. Go over some of the things that could possibly impact your business.

Here in the Augusta, GA area, we could possibly experience tornadoes, power outages, flooding in some areas, or cyber-attacks. We, at Cross Link Consulting can help walk you through the steps to take and provide you with the best processes to make sure that you don’t endure a long-term blackout and we can get you on a quick path to recovery.

Even though the catastrophic may never happen, it is better to be prepared and not need it than to need to have a plan and not have one when you need it the most.
