Prepare Your Business for Power Outages
Power outages happen suddenly and without notice. To protect your business from the costs and disruptions associated with a power outage, you should have on-site power backup solutions. At the physical location of your organization, you may want to have generators or other backup power supplies to which you can immediately switch if the power goes out. This will ensure that you can continue operating and delivering services to your customers; however, the long-term cost of supplying your own power can be very high. Read more.
Take Steps Now to Protect Your Business from Ransomware
Ransomware attacks can be avoided with carefully layered detection and security protocols that make it very difficult for hackers to break in. Organizations must also be cautious about where and how data is stored and accessed. Running files from desktops, USB sticks, or external drives can leave you without a safety net. We recommend the use of an enterprise file sync software like SyncedTool from which files can be accessed and used.

More than half of all small businesses attacked will go out of business within two years. Small and mid-size businesses are a target because they tend to have smaller IT security budgets, making them easier to access. The cost of recovering from a security breach – if the business is even capable of recovering – can be more than $100,000 and averages $55,000 per incident for an SMB. Read more.
