Today all businesses have some dependency on phones, computers and electronic systems to function properly. Too many of us take those systems for granted until something happens to disable them and our business stops in its tracks.
Learn the basics of how to protect your business and how to keep operating when things start falling apart due to human error, equipment failure, acts of nature, etc.
This workshop covers the steps that you can take to organize how you operate so that you can quickly recover and keep your business going when the systems that you depend on fail you:
- Website goes offline
- E-mail isn’t working
- Phones shut down
- Server goes down
- Office or home is not accessible
- Key files are not accessible – payroll, invoicing, etc.
- Identity theft exposure – yours and your customers
Be proactive. There are solutions to all of the above to keep your business operating while others have to shut down. Reduce your risk with planning. Be able to work from anywhere in an effective manner. Protect against failure but be able to recover from failure.
