disaster recoveryThreats to your business come in many forms, from Hurricane Florence threatening the East coast to Harvey in Accounting opening an infected email. While there are many steps you can take to reduce your exposure, it’s almost impossible to prevent disaster completely. Your best move is to have a response plan in place to help you recover as quickly as possible. And it just so happens to be National Preparedness Month, so we’ve got some tips to help you out.

From the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT):

National Preparedness Month is a good opportunity to assess your emergency preparedness. While general preparedness is essential to getting through an emergency related to a natural disaster, the same is true of preparing for a cyber-related event, such as identity theft or a ransomware infection.

NCCIC encourages users and administrators to be prepared in case of a cyber-related event by regularly backing up files, keeping digital copies of important documents somewhere other than your computer (e.g., in the cloud), and regularly running antivirus scans.
