6 Ways to Protect Your Technology From a Hurricane

September 20, 2018

It's hurricane season, and for those people living near the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico, it's a period of awareness and preparedness. At home, we know to stock up on water, non-perishables and flashlights, and we have an emergency plan in place. But, we often don't even think about how to protect our place of work.

On top of coming back to work after the stress of a hurricane, it would be a whole new disaster to realize the computers have short-circuited, the printers are waterlogged, the entire network is down and all your digital work is gone. How do you prepare your technology for hurricane season? Avoid the expensive, time-consuming and stressful task of rebuilding your technology environment by following these proactive IT tips:

With offices in Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa, we have to monitor both the Atlantic and Gulf Coast every hurricane season. We follow our own hurricane advice faithfully and like many of our clients, our business continuity plan is ready in the event of a disaster.

But, as an IT company we know that a technology continuity plan is just as important to have. Long before hurricane season begins, your company should create a comprehensive strategy for what steps to take before, during and after any type of emergency situation. Just as important as creating a technology continuity plan, it's crucial to distribute the information to your entire company so everyone is on the same page.

With tropical cyclones expected to increase in intensity and frequency as the  21st century progresses, it's critical to make a plan now and commit these six tips to memory.
